GEAPS Canadian Prairies Chapter Meeting

The Canadian Prairies Chapter (CPC) is excited to invite you to meeting and dinner with a presentation by the Construction Safety Association of Manitoba (CSAM) on Tour demo trailer for four critical safety topics demonstrated via a specially equipment safety truck.

The meeting and dinner will be held on Wednesday November 8, 2023 at:

Winnipeg Construction Association (WCA)

1447 Waverley Street
Winnipeg, MB

Doors open at 4:00 pm and the safety demonstration starts at 4:30pm.

Topic Outline 
Matt Lothian will provide safety demos on the following four topics:
1. Fall Arrest - See the importance of using appropriate fall arrest equipment. CSAM’s safety advisors will demonstrate a fall enactment so you can witness the difference between wearing an approved shock-absorbing lanyard and a non-shock-absorbing lanyard.
2. Hand Safety - See first-hand how wearing appropriate hand protection can reduce your chances of injury. Experience a demonstration of cut-resistant versus non-cut-resistant gloves that are practical to use in construction.
3. Eye Protection - See the importance of wearing proper, approved eye protection. This demo clearly shows the difference in protection between approved and non-approved eyewear when coming in contact with a high-impact object, such as a nail from an air-nailer.
4. Safe Lifting - See how proper lifting techniques can reduce back injuries. Watch a demonstration that shows the impact lifting has on your body. We will also demonstrate how using your legs to lift can reduce injuries to your back.
5. Hard Hat Safety - See how wearing a hard hat will dissipate the impact force of an object falling onto a worker’s head. This demo will clearly show the difference between impact of with, and without a head protection.
