A lunch event this Thursday by the Saskatchewan Construction Safety Association will gather southwest construction workers to talk about safety with none other than the Tornado Hunter, Greg Johnson.

The event highlights severe weather and worksite safety and will be held at Swift Current's Living Sky Casino from 11 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

Edward Pyle, vice president of the Saskatchewan Construction Safety Association, is excited about the opportunity to remind workers of some of the risks of their professions.

"We'll be doing a brief business meeting and there'll be some networking opportunities and a lunch for all attendees," said Pyle.

Event participants will experience relevant discussions, learn how to access products and services and receive important refreshers on handling risky work safely. 

"Greg's presentation is really focused on showing how you take work that has some risk, in his case tornado hunting, using the right systems, equipment, and trained people, taking the risk out of the work and moving forward," Pyle said.

Interested parties could register for the free event online at scsaonline.ca to reserve their tickets. 

"Looking forward to being in Swift Current, it's an important community to us and we're looking forward to meeting people," said Pyle.
