EHS Today's Safety Leadership Conference is the premier education and networking opportunity for leaders in occupational safety and health, compliance and risk management. The 2021 Safety Leadership Conference will be held Nov. 9-11, 2021, in Cleveland, Ohio, at the Huntington Convention Center, as well as virtually. This year, the Safety Leadership Conference joins with 2021 Manufacturing & Technology Show, a new hybrid event designed to cover the total manufacturing industry and provide actionable intelligence to fuel the pursuit of excellence.
We need your participation to make this conference a success. Here's how you can help move the industry forward: We're seeking EHS professionals with practical experience in managing and leading safety operations at their companies or organizations. In particular, we're looking for safety leaders who are willing to share best practices in keeping their workforces safe, as well as lessons learned in what works and what doesn't.
We welcome submissions from consultants or vendors as well, but such proposals will only be considered if paired with a co-presenter who is an active safety professional in manufacturing, distribution, construction, or another industry sector.
See the 2020 event schedule here for examples.
2021 Tracks and Topics
Historically, the election of a new U.S. President has resulted in new leadership and administration of safety at the federal level. These new directions in safety standards and regulations can greatly impact on the landscape of EHS compliance. Speakers in the Compliance track offer their insights into what safety leaders need to know to ensure their organizations remain in compliance with the latest rules and regulations.
The Construction Safety track focuses on the demanding task of managing construction site safety. EHS professionals from construction companies as well as industry professionals who have helped fine-tune the safety culture at small-, medium- and large-sized construction firms share their tips for improving construction site safety. This includes everything from increasing employee engagement, to using technology, to help manage safety, to developing programs for other aspects of construction such as fall protection and PPE.
This track focuses on programs and best practices that keep drivers, technicians, other employees and the general public safe. From complying with drivers’ hours of service rules to collision-prevention efforts, the Fleet Safety track focuses on how fleets can reduce risk, stay in compliance with regulations and improve operating efficiency.
Safety & Risk Management:
In this track, EHS and risk management professionals offer their insights about safety leadership and establishing a safety culture, whether it be at a single facility or throughout an entire corporation. Winners of the America's Safest Companies awards are featured along with safety professionals from other leading organizations that share lessons learned and best practices in risk management.
Learn how the latest in safety technology can be integrated into the workplace to reduce injuries and illnesses. From identifying and tracking leading indicators via software, sensors and IoT, to state-of-the-art production improvements, to futuristic robotics, this track offers a look at the future of safe work.
