For the second year in a row, the HHCA’s Young Leaders Group (YLG) organized HHCA's participation in Safety Week. The HHCA’s Young Leaders Group again took part in the Steps for Life fundraising walk in support of Threads of Life on Sunday May 5, 2019.
Threads of Life supports the healing journey of families who have suffered from a workplace fatality, traumatic life-altering injury, or occupational disease.
The YLG hosted a SAFETY EDITION YLG talk on Tuesday May 7, 2019.
