    Presenter: Duncan Hawkins, Manager, Quality Assurance and Process Development, PROPAK Systems Ltd.

    Duncan has over 27-years of experience in a combination of manufacturing sectors ranging from oil and gas, transportation, plastics, and industrial electrical working in both occupational health and safety, and quality management. Additionally, having worked in Alberta for a Certifying Partner in the Partnership in Injury Reduction (PIR) as a course and program facilitator, lead auditor and audit reviewer, compliance representative serving the manufacturing sector, and Senior Safety Advisor, Duncan brings a vast array of ideas and approaches to meeting the requirements in ISO 45001/ 9001.

    Disclaimer: The risk matrix offered in this webinar is only an example of a risk matrix and is not to be confused with a mandated risk matrix offered by the AAC. Although there are various approaches for assessing risk through a risk matrix, it is important for a company to use a matrix that can meet their needs while also ensure risk can and will be assessed consistently through the matrix in order to lay the foundation for continual improvement opportunities within the functioning management system.
