2020 Petroleum Safety Conference Speakers Announced

February 5, 2020

Energy Safety Canada announces 2020 Petroleum Safety Conference speakers.
Energy Safety Canada is pleased to announce Humboldt Broncos Ryan Straschnitzki as the closing keynote at the 70th Anniversary of the Petroleum Safety Conference (PSC) to be held in Banff, Alberta on April 28-30, 2020.

This will be the first formal speaking engagement for Ryan, who has inspired a nation following the 2018 Humboldt Broncos bus crash near Tisdale, Saskatchewan, that tragically killed 16, injured 13 others, and, left many in mourning.

Paralyzed from the chest down, Ryan’s fight back from the crash has been nothing short of remarkable. The determination, focus and strong work ethic that served Ryan in pursuit of his hockey dreams continue to be the foundation of Ryan’s long road to recovery.

Ryan will share his story of perseverance with more than 750 delegates expected to attend the health and safety conference and tradeshow — the largest of its kind in Canada.

Ryan joins an outstanding program of keynote speakers, which includes Rick Mercer, author and comedian; Chris Slubicki, CEO of Modern Resources; and Jason Gardner, Extreme Ownership Instructor and former Navy Seal.

“We are very pleased to host this special 70th Anniversary event with such a stellar line-up of speakers. All of them bring a message about the importance of health and well-being as an industry and as Canadians,” says Murray Elliott, President and CEO of Energy Safety Canada.

The conference is designed to connect those from the oil and gas industry with health and safety experts, innovations and technologies.
