A Wealth of Safety Information

Taking place April 6-8, Safety Summit 2020 preconference sessions and main conference offer all the information safety professionals need for success, from compliance to culture. On April 6, we are offering 5 different topics for our preconference sessions (Note: preconference sessions require separate registration and purchase from the main conference): Risk Assessment, Workplace Violence Prevention, Drug Testing, Emergency Preparedness, and OSHA Injury & Illness Recordkeeping.

Then we have our main conference on April 7 and 8, where the nation’s leading safety experts will cover the pressing EHS topics of today. When you leave Safety Summit, you will be able to:

  • Anticipate the impact OSHA-related regulatory developments and legislative trends have on workplace safety policies and procedures
  • Legally adhere to applicable federal requirements when developing and enforcing risk-management policies and procedures
  • Assess workplace violence risks and identify safeguards to protect employees
  • Apply adaptive safety training strategies for a diverse, multi-generational workforce
  • Efficiently capture and analyze data to enhance our safety efforts
  • Achieve better safety outcomes by practicing servant leadership
  • Integrate behavioral and systems approaches to increase safety performance
  • And more!

Covering issues from OSHA compliance to safety leadership and culture to providing effective training, the event is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to develop your professional skills and bring valuable information back to your organization.
