Highlights from the Safety Leadership Conference 2021

Dec. 8, 2021
Visuals from the in-person Cleveland event, and the awards presentation to this year’s America’s Safest Companies.

Cleveland was the host city for EHS Today’s 2021 Safety Leadership Conference, held Nov. 9-11 and co-located with IndustryWeek’s Manufacturing & Technology (M&T) Show. After going virtual in 2020 due to the pandemic, the SLC celebrated its 10th year by returning with a hybrid event. The Cleveland event featured facility tours, workshops, keynote presentations, an exhibit hall, and 15 breakout sessions focused on safety technology, regulatory compliance, and risk management.

As always, SLC provided plenty of opportunities for attendees to network and share best practices with fellow safety professionals. And as in the past, a highlight of the event was the presentation of the America’s Safest Companies awards. Below, you’ll see leaders from nine of the winning companies being congratulated by EHS Today’s chief editor Dave Blanchard. (One of the winners, CJ Drilling, was unable to attend.)

We also hosted a live virtual SLC on Dec. 7-8, which you can access at www.safetyleadershipconference.com. You can register for free to watch the sessions on demand for 90 days.

The following pages offer some visual highlights from the Cleveland conference. All photos were taken by Charles Thomas, who works for EHS Today's parent company Endeavor Business Media. We hope to see everybody at Safety Leadership Conference 2022, Oct. 18-20, again in Cleveland.
