Congratulations to Catherine Roome, CEO BC Safety Authority and WWEST supporter for winning the R.A. McLachlan Memorial Award

“Catherine Roome is a visionary for change with a dedication to service and public safety. Current President and CEO of the BC Safety Authority, Ms. Roome’s leadership was the driving force behind its switch from an inspection-based operating model to an evidence-based risk identification and safety management system. On top of her technical achievements, Ms. Roome’s community-based work is also impressive. She has promoted the advancement of women in engineering throughout her career, volunteering with the Division for the Advancement of Women in Engineering and Geoscience and SCWIST.”
