|CSCE Board Meeting left members feeling enthusiastic
CSCE held a very successful and engaging board meeting this past weekend with many outcomes that we look forward to sharing with our members. With some recent changes to the structure of the National Office, board members are feeling confident that CSCE is more determined than ever to be truly engaged with members and to find new ways to show them that they are the voice of CSCE.
Together we will deliver on our strategic directions and find ways to improve communications around everything that we do. We are excited to reveal a revamp to our brand, to work with our regions and sections to unite our voice and make it clear that CSCE’s strength comes from the passion shared by our members.
Civil Engineers pursue this vocation to help others and at CSCE we know that together we can do more.
Hosted by ICE
CSCE’s President, Glenn Hewus, had the honour of speaking at the Global Engineering Congress in London last week about CSCE’s views and approach on Sustainable Development. His presentation was very well received and conversations were later had around how collaborations around sustainable efforts could help improve focus on this global mission.
He also had the honour of co-presenting ICE, with ASCE, a plaque to recognize them as an International Historical Civil Engineering Landmark.
CSCE was also highlighted in the article about the Global Engineering Congress put out by Engineers Canada, read more here.

The CSCE and the Canada Masonry Design Centre (CMDC) have developed this course on the new changes to the 2014 edition of the CSA S304, which are viewed as a substantial improvement to the 2004 standard. Bennett Banting, Ph.D., P.Eng., Masonry Research and Development Engineer at the Canada Masonry Design Centre (CMDC), presents a detailed overview of these changes as well as design examples that illustrate how masonry seismic design has evolved to meet the requirements of the 2015 NBCC.

Canadian Precast Prestressed Concrete Institute
CPCI (manufacturing) members number 41, with 58 plants throughout Canada with over 350,000sq. m of plant space available for producing the precast concrete you require for your project. The inherent benefits of precast prestressed concrete make it the best choice for many projects. Structural strength provides long clear spans. Fast production, delivery and erection saves time and money. The creative dimensions of shape, texture, colour and pattern produce attractive buildings. Durability means unsurpassed low maintenance and life-time cost effectiveness.

With sadness we report that our friend, Reg Wallace, passed away in Toronto on September 27, 2018. Reg had a wide ranging career as a civil engineer and more generally was a good citizen of the world.
Reg who was born in Montreal in 1933 was raised in Cardinal, Ontario, where his father was the Chief Engineer for the Canada Starch Company. It may explain Reg’s ongoing interest in the history of civil engineering as he was very aware that Walter Shanly, one of the founders of the Canada Starch Company, had contributed so much to the founding in 1887 of the Canadian Society of Civil Engineers. Reg attended Ridley College before enrolling in 1951 in the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario, graduating in 1955. As required at the time, to be registered as a professional engineer, he had to undertake one more year of studies which he did at the University of Toronto graduating with Honours. Reg was then awarded an Athlone Fellowship which enabled him to study Concrete Technology at Imperial College in London, England.

It’s time for organizations to focus on employee health and well-being, and leaders play a crucial role in this, according to a speaker at the CEO Health + Safety Leadership Network roundtable on Oct. 18.
“We have been around 100 years. We call ourselves a health and safety association, but I would suggest to you that we have been primarily a safety association so far,” said Andrew Harkness, strategic advisor, organizational health, at Ontario’s Workplace Safety and Prevention Services.
Chevron is investing $400,000 in the University of Alberta’s David and Joan Lynch School of Engineering Safety and Risk Management.
It’s the only program of its kind in Canada, designed to advance academic excellence in safety by teaching future engineers how to better include safety and risk management practices in their professional actives, UAlberta says.
Winnipeg's transit union is calling on the city's new council to make bus safety a top priority after a recent spate of violent incidents.
"It's getting out of hand, so it needs to be controlled before it gets any further than what it is," said Aleem Chaudhary, president of the Amalgamated Transit Union.
The province of Manitoba is weighing in on the emergency response following a train derailment that left two men trapped for hours.
The Hudson Bay Railway train went off the tracks near Ponton, MB, on Sept. 15.
The train's 59-year-old engineer has life changing injuries. The 38-year-old conductor, Kevin Anderson, died.

Pull up a chair and ponder a part of the automobile that drivers may take for granted but that the manufacturers do not: seats. Buyers are seduced by a car’s styling, performance and brand image. But you’re going nowhere fast without a good place to park your behind.
A good seat helps improve safety, makes us better drivers and can even increase a car’s fuel efficiency.
