Let’s make people safer

The world’s largest annual gathering of safety professionals is happening in New Orleans this year! The 2023 NSC Safety Congress & Expo is set to take place at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center on Oct. 20-26.

To help you plan your time at the event, we’re sharing some of the show’s highlights:

Opening Session speaker and magician Jon Dorenbos’ principles can be applied whether you’re at work or at home. Even after being diagnosed with a life-threatening heart condition, Dorenbos still says “life is magic.” He’ll share how you can turn self-doubt into happiness. (Oct. 23)

Training across generations is the theme of the Campbell Institute Forum. Tamara Coppens from Dow Inc. and Amanda Ladner from Chemours Co. will show you how to incorporate different learning styles, attitudes and preferences of all generations of workers. (Oct. 23)

Diversity, equity and inclusion in the occupational sector will be addressed during the DEI Panel discussion. Speakers are still being added to the panel, so check in often at to find out who’ll be participating in this important discussion. (Oct. 24)

Then, during the Closing Keynote, Cameron Stevens will walk you through using technology and innovation to improve human and organizational performance. (Oct. 25)

After Stevens’ session, stick around to hear from the Safety Innovation Challenge finalists. Each will present a solution for decreasing musculoskeletal disorders in the workplace. (Oct. 25)

And remember to check out one of the 100-plus Technical Sessions and Professional Development Seminar opportunities. Don’t have that much time? Returning to the Expo Floor this year is the NSC Learning Lab, which will feature shorter (but information-packed) educational sessions during show hours.
