Windsor-Essex Engineering Month 2015

 

Windsor-Essex Engineering Month 2015 will be celebrated by various activities throughout the month of March. Engineering Month activities promote public awareness of engineering/technology issues. The following events are planned:

 

33rd annual Windsor-Essex Engineering Month Luncheon

During this event, awards will be given for Engineer of the Year, Technologist of the Year, and student bursaries. This year’s theme is Engineering and Team Building. The keynote speaker for the luncheon is Chantal Vallee, head coach of the Women’s Basketball team at the University of Windsor.

Guest Speaker:
Chantal Vallee

 

Picture

In 2002, after years of research on successful enterprise and leaders, Chantal Vallée submitted her master’s thesis at McGill University on “How to build a successful program”. Three years later, she was hired by the University of Windsor to become the Head Coach of the Lancers Women’s Basketball Team. 
At the time, the Windsor Lancers had only 4 winning seasons in a span of nearly 50 years. In the 2 years prior to Chantal’s arrival, the team had played over 60 games and lost all but 8. Fan attendance was sparse and Windsor was known as the “doormat of women’s basketball in Canada.”
But Chantal had a dream and a plan and told anyone who would listen that the team would win a national championship within 5 years!  
In March 2011, the mission was accomplished. The Lancers Women's Basketball team were crowned National Champions for the first time in history in front of a capacity crowd on their home court. This was topped by a record-breaking rating on TSN for the most watched National Championship final with over 104 000 viewers.  The Globe and Mail featured Chantal with the title “Coach Takes Windsor from Outhouse to Penthouse".  In 2012, the team repeated as National Champions, 3-peated in 2013, and 4-peated in 2014;  a feat only 1 other team has done in history. 
In the past 5 seasons, Chantal has received 12 Coach of the Year Awards, produced 4 Canadian national team members, won 123 regular season games and lost only 7, won 5 Provincial and 4 National Titles, and maintained a winning percentage of 94%.

OACETT Seminar: Pre-Start Health and Safety Reviews

Learn when a PSR is required and when the legal requirements apply. 

 

You will take back to your workplace tools and resources to help you comply with Section 7, including a presenter developed flowchart depicting the PSR process and an assessment worksheet that will assist in assessing if Section 7 applies and if a PSR is required. You will also receive PSR guidelines developed by the Ministry of Labour.
