We are certain that you are as committed to the safety of the delegates, exhibitors and staff involved in Pri-med Canada 2022 as we are. The following health and safety requirements are not only best practices but are also requirements of the Occupational Health & Safety Act and Regulations in Ontario, Canada. Everyone on the show floor is responsible for ensuring a healthy and safe working environment. A signed copy of the Ontario Event Safety Rules Declaration MUST be submitted to Show Management by every exhibiting company.
Exhibitors are required to ensure the health and safety of their employees and inform them of these requirements prior to move-in.
SAFTEY RULES (please read carefully)
- Safety footwear (Steel-toed shoes or boots) MUST be worn during move-in and move-out as directed by Show Management. Absolutely NO open-toed shoes or sandals!

- Proper extension devices (i.e. ladders) must be used. We strongly discourage ladders 12′ or higher. Items such as tables, chairs, boxes, etc. should not be used to lift a person.
- Early tear-down of exhibit booths causes a chain reaction of exhibitors eager to get home, and fills the aisles with packing boxes –CAUSING SAFETY HAZARDS. Please do not begin tear-down process until the official show closing announcement.
- Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) must be onsite with you at the booth for each WHMIS controlled chemical used at your booth, and all staff in contact with these chemicals are required to wear appropriate personal protective equipment such as safety gloves and glasses.
All exhibitors must comply with the Occupational Health & Safety Act and Regulations, governed by the Province of Ontario. It is also the sole responsibility of each exhibitor to ensure that all on-site staff and contracted suppliers are familiar with this legislation and comply with the required regulations at all times while onsite at the International Centre.
These regulations will be strictly enforced on-site by both show management and representatives of the Ministry of Labour. Any fines or costs incurred due to the enforcement of the law will be at the sole expense of the exhibitor.
