Labor Inspectors Conference to Make First Landing in North America

The Ontario Ministry of Labour and the Industrial Accident Prevention Association (IAPA) are sponsoring the 2007 International Association of Labour Inspection Conference next month. The event takes place April 18-20 in Toronto and is being held in cooperation with the International Labor Organization, the government of Canada, and Ontario's Workplace Safety and Insurance Board.

The IALI conference will run in conjunction with IAPA's 90th annual Health & Safety Canada 2007, which is Canada's largest health and safety trade show. Both shows take place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and share the theme "Innovative Strategies for Safer & Healthier Workplaces."

"We at the Ontario Ministry of Labour, as conference hosts, are proud of our accomplishments in improving workplace health and safety and reducing injury," said Ontario Minister of Labour Steve Peters. "The great success of our strategy to reduce workplace injuries by 20 per cent is recognized internationally in IALI's decision to hold its conference here - the first time in North America. I bid a warm welcome to all delegates."

The IALI conference's keynote speakers will include Gerd Albracht, an ILO senior specialist in Occupational Safety and Health in Geneva, Switzerland; Helle Tosine, assistant deputy minister for the Ontario Ministry of Labour; Michele Patterson, IALI's president; and Dr. Malcolm K. Sparrow, Professor of the Practice of Public Management at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government. For more information, visit www.iapa.ca/iali.
