A few of the standout sessions and events over the next few days include Monday’s Executive Forum, which will discuss serious injury and fatality preventions.
Executives will have a frank and open discussion on one of our biggest safety challenges: preventing serious injuries and deaths even as we continue to improve overall performance rates. Professionals in attendance include: Don Martin, Sr., vice president, DEKRA/BST; Larry Masotti, director of Strategic Relationships, Workplace Safety & Prevention Services; Laura Ambrose, global director of EH&S Operations, The Dow Chemical Company, and Peter Waite, senior director of Global Health, Safety and Environment, Eli Lilly and Company.
Tuesday’s Occupational Keynote deals with the future of workplace safety and will focus on the following questions:
Will the future be more regulations and OSHA compliance standards, and if so what will they be? Or will it be more focused on people: their critical decisions and unintentional errors? Will it be confined to the workplace like it is in Europe, or will it be 24/7 and include the family? What about neuroscience? Will safety remain with risk management or move into human performance? Finally, will issues with management commitment still remain? With extensive experience from around the globe, the presenters will share their views on the future of safety and why they’re so optimistic for the next 10 years.
Presenters are Deborah Hersman, National Safety Council president & CEO; Larry Wilson, CEO and author, SafeStart ®; and Tim Page-Bottorff, CSP, CET, senior safety consultant, SafeStart®.
And, as usual, OSHA’s Top 10 Announcement will take place on the Expo Floor. Attendees will be the first to hear OSHA’s Top 10 most cited violations for fiscal year 2017 live from the Congress and Expo.
