Departure Announcement

December 2021

14 December 2021

After almost three years at the helm of Actsafe Safety Association, Manu Nellutla has announced that he will be resigning as CEO from Actsafe Safety Association effective January 7, 2022.  

During his tenure, Manu prioritized growth and innovation. The Actsafe team has doubled in size and has developed additional resources, training programs and safety advisory services such as ActONE (Actsafe’s Occupational health and safety Needs Evaluation). Manu led Actsafe in pivoting its operations to provide support to the industries during the COVID19 pandemic.  He has worked diligently to bring industry members together with a consensus-based approach on a range of safety initiatives. 

Manu leaves Actsafe with strong stakeholder engagement, a dedicated employee team and healthy finances. Actsafe remains well-positioned to further its mission of health and safety in the production of motion pictures, television, live events and performing arts in British Columbia. The Board will be initiating a search to identify a successor to build on this strong foundation and lead it forward.  

On behalf of Actsafe’s team and stakeholders, it is my pleasure to thank Manu for his leadership of Actsafe, and I wish Manu all the best in his future endeavours.
