This is a Perfect Time for a Cultural Tune-up

Across the board, the pressure's on American companies, their managers, and their employees. Succeeding in domestic and international markets is an extreme challenge when credit is tightening, skilled labor is scarce, raw material prices are rising, and regulatory regimes are changing – the looming Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals is just one example. Your safety culture can be a firm foundation amid this tumult.

At least 11 educational sessions at this month's 95th Annual National Safety Congress & Expo offer intermediate-level or advanced guidance for tuning up your culture. Loss control experts, consultants, insurance company risk managers, university researchers, and experts from organizations including the U.S. Department of Defense, United Airlines, Coors Brewing Co., and NIOSH are presenting at these sessions, which are sprinkled across the program on Oct. 15, 16, and 17.
