The 2013 National Safety Council(NSC) Congress & Expo will be held in NSC’s hometown of Chicago at the McCormick Place, West Building. The Congress, with its educational slate, will run from September 28 through October 4. The sprawling Expo will run from September 30 to October 2.

The theme of this year’s Congress & Expo: “Leading Safety into the Future.”

The Congress & Expo attracts more than 13,000 safety, health and environmental professionals. They network day and night to discuss the most recent and pressing issues in the EHS world. Professionals also hone and expand their skills by attending educational workshops and courses on safety’s toughest challenges.

More than 900 vendors from around the world display their wares on the exposition floor. The expo serves as a comprehensive overview of product and service developments in the EHS world.

For more than 100 years, professionals have turned to this event for industry-leading technology, education, networking opportunities and the tried and true products and services needed to stay at the forefront and remain competitive within the industry.

In 2010, NSC introduced the Journey to Safety Excellence philosophy, which can help you and your company answer the following questions regarding its current safety program:

l Where are you now – and where do you want to be?

l How will you move forward?

l How do you manage your improvement and measure your progress?

Congress is designed to build awareness of the tools available to you and your organization as you continue down the path to safety excellence.
