“Preventable workplace deaths in the U.S. have increased each year for the past four years, illustrating that more needs to be done to protect our workforce,” said Lorraine M. Martin, president and CEO of the National Safety Council in a press release. “Congress & Expo attendees have the opportunity to gain insight and tools that can make a valuable difference in their organization’s safety operation. We look forward to seeing what the best and brightest in safety have to offer when it comes to eliminating preventable deaths and injuries in the workplace.”
