Safety pros gearing up for 2019 NSC Congress & Expo
More than 15,000 safety, health and environmental professionals will descend on the San Diego Convention Center next month for the 2019 National Safety Council Congress & Expo, where they’ll have opportunities to learn, network and check out new safety products.
Keynote speakers Lorraine Martin, President & CEO of the National Safety Council (NSC) and Mick Ebeling, Founder & CEO of Not Impossible Labs and author of: Not Impossible: The Art and Joy of Doing What Couldn't Be Done, will kick things off.
Some 125 Technical Sessions, workshops, Professional Development Seminars and Learning Labs will enable attendees to advance their knowledge on topics including industrial hygiene, behavioral safety, ergonomics, workplace violence, conducting safety inspections, sustainability and process safety.
More than a thousand companies will be showcasing their products and technology at the expanded New Product Showcase.
The popular Executive Forum will this year focus on: EHS & Sustainability - Beyond the Buzzwords, and on giving safety professionals practical perspectives on how to effectively integrate EHS and sustainability in their organizations.
According to the NSC, the Executive Forum is a platform for open, honest dialogue and provides attendees with a chance to pose questions “to the best of the best in EHS.”
This year’s panel for the forum consists of Nancy Case, Environment, Health and Safety for The Mosaic Co.; Danyelle Phelps, Director of Enterprise Environmental and Operations Sustainability for Owens Corning and Catherine Sheane, Civil/Structures Sustainability and Resilience Practice Lead for Parsons Corp.
As for weather, while it’s still too early to predict the exact weather conditions at the time of the NSC Conress & Expo (Sept. 6-12), San Diego boasts an average daily temperature of 71 degrees Fahrenheit, with 300 sunny days a year. If you’re going, a light jacket may be all you need for evenings.
