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

Speakers:  

Andrew Paynter, Safety Health & Environement Manager, AECOM

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.

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.
