“Elizabeth Rankin-Horvath delivered a 1-day high quality training to NRCan employees on the National Standard on Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace. Elizabeth was able to explain the 4-stages of the implementation of the standard in a manner that conveyed clarity, accuracy, depth and generosity and modesty given that she was one of the lead coordinators in the development of the standard.
