COR Certification: Promoting Safety, Health and Loss Prevention
Presenter: Sean Scott – Executive Director, Construction Safety Association of Manitoba
The Construction Safety Association of Manitoba (CSAM) is an industry funded and directed safety program offering information, resources and education to Manitoba employers. CSAM is the Authority Having Jurisdiction to grant the nationally recognized Certificate of Recognition (COR Certification) in the Province of Manitoba.
COR is a safety program accreditation process that verifies a company has developed and implemented an effective safety, health and loss prevention program. The mandatory 14 elements of CSAM’s program meet and exceed the requirements detailed in the WSH Act, providing employers with practical guidelines to meet their legal duties and responsibilities.
Copies of the new WSH Act & Regulation booklet will be provided to those in attendance.
Chemical Safety in Commercial & Institutional Facilities
Presenters: Peter Griffin – Senior Occupational Hygienist, Pinchin Environment
This session covers regulatory (e.g. Fire Code and EH&S Regulations) and best practice requirements (e.g. BOMA Best) for the storage, use and handling of use-building related (e.g. boiler chemicals, air conditioning refrigerants and waste) hazardous materials in commercial and institutional buildings. Practical solutions and compliance strategies will also be addressed.
Fire Emergency Planning: What you need to know and why!
Presenter: Tim Tanner – Director, Fire Plan Strategies & Brian Tanner, Operations Manager, Fire Plan Strategies
In this presentation we will discuss the 4 pillars of Section 2.8 (Emergency Planning) of the Manitoba Fire Code, namely: the fire safety plan, staff training, posted emergency procedures, and fire drills. We will explain what is required and why they are important from the perspective of the building owner, the occupants, and finally from a city fire inspector.
After the presentation, participants should feel comfortable conducting a cursory review of their own emergency planning documents to determine if they are in compliance with the fire code (and have thus reduced their liability).

BOMA Measurement Standards for Office, Retail and Industrial Buildings
Presenter: Bill Partridge, President & Chief Staff Officer, BOMA Calgary
Getting the area of a building measured correctly is an important issue for building owners and property managers alike. The BOMA measurement standard is often cited as the basis of floor measurement for commercial real estate and it is often in appropriately applied.
In many markets, the BOMA 1996 is the most widely used and it was recently superseded by BOMA 2010.
This seminar will provide an overview of the BOMA 1996 standard and address how it should be used and point out some key areas where misinterpretation is quite common. The seminar will also highlight the major changes from BOMA 1996 to BOMA 2010 and the reasons for these changes.
The session will be fast-paced and highly interactive and it will give learners a better understanding of the application of these measurement standards.
