Three Must-See Sessions at NSC’s Safety Congress & Expo 2022

With more than 100 technical sessions, NSC Congress & Expo has much education to bring to safety professionals. Which sessions should you choose?

The National Safety Council is excited to host safety professionals in San Diego for their annual Safety Congress and expo on September 16 – 22. The conference has traditionally brought many educational sessions to safety professionals, so they can earn their Continuing Education Credits but it isn’t always easy deciding which ones you should attend. 

Occupational Health & Safety has combed through the NSC Safety Congress and Expo program and determined that these three sessions should be considered must-sees in San Diego. 

"Knock. Knock. Who’s There? Inspector.” A Guide to Permanent Inspection Readiness 

Monday, September 19 | Room 32 A 


Andrew Paynter, Safety Health & Environement Manager, AECOM 

Einer Peters, HSE Sr. Manager, CBRE 

Matthew Botzler, Regional EHS Manager Americas, Johnson Matthey 

In this session, speakers will review the auditing process, discuss what you’ll need to establish successful corporate programs and provide examples of effective internal “inspection readiness” structures. As leaders within our organizations, we can either run for the hills or establish programs to better enable our teams to feel confident and be permanently “inspection ready.”  

OSHA’s Top Ten Violations 

Tuesday, September 20 | Ballroom 20AD 


Kevin Druley, National Safety Council 

Patrick Kapust, Acting Director, OSHA Directorate of Enforcement Programs 

As always, Patrick Kapust will be back to announce OSHA’s Top 10 Most Frequently Cited Standards at the NSC Congress & Expo. To stay up-to-date on all things OSHA, this is a must see session. 

Address the Stress: Mental Health for You and Your Teams 

Wednesday, September 21 | Room 30 E 


Amanda Kime, Director of Safety Services, Associated General Contractors of Washington 

Shannon Couch, Sr. SH&E Manager West, AECOM 

In this session, you’ll learn about recent research and review a mental health best practices guide that’s aimed at construction employers but has tenets that apply to all industries. We’ll dive into some healthy coping and resilience techniques for both you and your team. You’ll be provided with a wealth of free and open-source resource material for starting or advancing a plan to address mental health in your workplace. 

Are these sessions on your list for the conference?
