2015 NSC Congress & Expo

Join the National Safety Council in Atlanta for the world’s largest annual event for environmental, health and safety professionals: the 2015 NSC Congress & Expo. This “must-attend” event – scheduled for Sept. 26 through Oct. 2 – is your chance to meet and mingle with more than 14,000 safety and health professionals, industry experts, and manufacturers and distributors of safety products and services.

The show begins with the Opening Session, “Building Safer Workplaces,” featuring author and former Navy commander Michael Abrasho, as well as Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of the National Safety Council.

Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to keynotes from nationally recognized safety leaders, including OSHA administrator David Michaels; NIOSH Director John Howard; Thomas John Bender, epidemiologist at Dow Chemical; and Peg Seminario, safety and health director for the AFL-CIO.

The opportunities don’t end there: Listen to a motivational keynote on the “Human Side of Injury Prevention,” participate in more than 120 Technical Sessions, and choose from more than 25 Professional Development Seminars.

On the Expo Floor, you’ll find more than 1,000 companies showcasing their products and services. Looking to network? Relax and socialize with other professionals at the NSC Networking Lounge (open during dedicated expo hours).
