Showcasing ideas and innovations in health and safety

Safety Den is our Dragons’ Den-inspired event showcasing ideas from people like you—continuing care workers passionate about improving workplace health and safety. Safety Den is one of the must-attend events at the BC Care Providers Association’s Annual Conference. The perfect mix of entertainment and education, the show highlights safety innovations in the continuing care sector. The 2023 Safety Den will be part of the BC Care Providers Association’s Annual Conference at the Victoria Conference Centre in May.
