Bio: Yvonne O’Reilly

I am an occupational health & safety (OHS) professional dedicated to making all workplaces healthier and safer. As owner of O’Reilly Health & Safety Consulting, my mission is to help employers manage their risk. I am also an instructor for the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies OHS course. Over my career I have gained extensive experience conducting compliance audits, creating/reviewing written OHS programs, and developing training programs. My professional experience includes representing the constructor/prime contractor on a multi-billion dollar construction project, and establishing an OHS practice within two national law firms. I’ve been very fortunate to have facilitated training & conference presentations from coast to coast, and am still working on my goal to work in each of the three territories. In 2014 O’Reilly Health & Safety Consulting celebrated 10 years, and relocated to Stratford Ontario. My commitment to OHS has led me to be involved in a number of volunteer roles, and national conferences:

  • Chair – North American Occupational Safety & Health (NAOSH) Week Committee
  • Governor – Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (BCRSP), 2010-2015
  • Board Member – Toronto Chapter of Canadian Society of Safety Engineering (CSSE) 2007-2009
  • Advisory Board – Bongarde Media ‘OHS Insider’ newsletter
