An informative session Monday dealt with a topic many people are familiar with, regardless of their job: Stress. “How to prevent, reduce and cope with stress in the workplace” was presented by Jim Allivato of ATI Worksite Solutions. “Stress is a normal psychological and physical reaction to the demands of life,” Allivato said. He discussed the various forms of stress and what they mean.
The general session speakers over three days at Safety 2019 aim to motivate attendees to look beyond assumptions and seize opportunities.
The first on Monday morning is Nicole Malachowski speaking on “The Power of Challenging Assumptions.” She believes the best organizations and leaders create cultures that engage and harness the diverse ideas, talents and abilities of every person, and in which challenging assumptions and the status quo drives extraordinary success.
While educational is a must, making connections is often the most valuable aspect of attending Safety 2019.
The conference is expected to draw 5,000 OSH professionals, each bringing unique experiences and expertise to the conference. This is a great opportunity to meet and converse with like-minded safety professionals, look for potential employers and employees, and expand your knowledge.
Think Tanks will take place in various locations around the Exposition at Safety 2019. These discussions encourage participation by taking a deeper dive into a problem or situation faced by OHS professionals. Everyone will be asking questions, discussing possible solutions or sharing what’s worked and what hasn’t.
Topics include engaging young professionals, safety guardrails, temporary workers, workplace harassment, confined space safety, among many others.
Violence in the workplace and best practices surrounding marijuana use are sure to be the most talked about educational sessions at Safety 2019.
With violence seemingly on the rise, more employers are hoping to reduce the risk of a dangerous event at their workplaces. Several courses will equip safety professionals to reduce risk at their workplaces, including “The Safety Professional and Active Shooter Planning” (S5027) at 10:45 am Monday in Room 220.
