Thank you for joining the EHS Today staff, the 2014 America’s Safest Companies and our team of 40+ EHS, sustainability, compliance and safety technology experts here in Indianapolis at the EHS Today America’s Safest Companies Conference. We are excited to celebrate America’s Safest Companies, meet all of you and learn from the best of the best.

Some 350 attendees, the staff of EHS Today, the 2014 America’s Safest Companies winners and our team of 40+ EHS, sustainability, compliance and safety technology experts arrived in Indianapolis this week for the EHS Today Safety Leadership Conference.

The first day included facility tours of Cummins Inc.'s Columbus Midrange Engine Plant, Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services Facility, Subaru of Indiana Automotive and Toyota Industrial Equipment Manufacturing Plant, as well as registration for the conference, a networking lunch and a welcome reception.

Tomorrow, the conference program leads off with a keynote address from John Drebinger, a popular motivational speaker, who will help attendees adopt the mindset of world-class safety leaders by sharing the secrets of safety champions who send their people home safely day after day.

The four tracks of this year's Safety Leadership Conference – Safety and Risk Management, Compliance, Safety Technology and Construction – will feature presentations from America’s Safest Companies, as well as leading experts who will guide attendees in achieving transformational, sustainable leadership in EHS.

Not only will this year's SLC participants learn what it takes to become world-class in EHS, but how to remain world-class and keep their workforce engaged in the process.
