Editor’s Note: Bringing people together

Whenever I talk with safety pros, what always comes across immediately is how much you all care about making people safer. You don’t do it for the money, and you certainly don’t do it for recognition or thanks – because you don’t receive nearly enough. It’s a privilege to work on a publication that aims to keep you informed about what’s happening in the occupational safety and health community.

The National Safety Council has been part of that community for more than 100 years. Every year since its inception, NSC has worked to bring people together – all with that same goal of keeping everyone safe on the job.

I’m looking forward to meeting – or reconnecting – with many of you at the 2023 NSC Safety Congress & Expo. Set to take place in New Orleans, it’s full of opportunities to learn, network and just be around thousands of people who share your commitment to preventing injuries.

This month in Safety+Health, we’re showcasing the technical sessions and professional development seminars that will take place at NSC Safety Congress & Expo, as well as the keynote sessions and special events.

If you’ll be there, we hope you’ll stop by the S+H booth, which is part of the NSC booth, to say hello.

Not able to make it to this year’s show? You can still read all about it. From Oct. 23 to Oct. 25, we’ll be highlighting what’s happening at the 2023 NSC Safety Congress & Expo in a special edition of our S+H Daily e-newsletter. Don’t receive the Daily? Sign up on our website (it’s free) to receive safety and health news every Monday through Thursday.

Whether in person, online or in print, we want to be here for you. Thanks for letting us be part of your safety journey.
