Tools for Safety

The official theme for ACAT 2020 is 'Tools for Safety'.

We want to learn about your safety programs, initiatives, best practices and the tools you use to make it all happen. The goal is for us all to learn from one another. Please contact Justin Labelle ( to discuss any topics you would like present.
