Safety Leadership Conference 2022, held in October in Cleveland, Ohio, saw hundreds of industry professionals gather to learn best practices and the latest trends over three jam-packed days.
The event kicked off with a panel discussion about electric vehicles and the rush to scale operations, both safely and responsibly.
Over the course of the conference, attendees had their choice of attending 10 breakout sessions devoted to safety management and safety solutions. They could also see the latest EHS products on display in the exhibit hall.
Attendees heard how Rockwell Automation weathered the COVID-19 pandemic from keynote speaker Majo Thurman, director of EHS. She shared in great detail actions Rockwell took to keep workers safe worldwide, including constantly revising and updating safety plans for the company. The industry has come a long way, and Thurman says we’re all stronger for it.
The winners of the 2022 America’s Safest Companies awards were recognized in a ceremony hosted by EHS Today Editor-in-Chief Dave Blanchard. Attendees also had the opportunity to hear from safety leaders at past America’s Safest Companies winners Ampirical (Rod Courtney), Fastenal (Ryan Tucker) and Victaulic (Bill D’Amico) in a keynote panel discussion about how they have built and sustained a culture of safety excellence.
The event concluded with safety tours of Goodyear’s Innovation Center Manufacturing, home of the company’s race tires; Goodyear Airship Operations to see how the Goodyear Blimp is maintained and serviced; and National Safety Apparel, a manufacturer of PPE and other worker apparel.
