Editor’s Note: Get ready for the show(s)

In addition to feature articles on Total Worker Health and falls in construction, tucked into this month’s issue is a quick preview of the 2024 NSC Spring Safety Conference & Expo – set to take place May 14-16 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.

The event will feature more than 20 educational sessions and over 100 exhibitors. Among the highlights: Well-known safety experts Tim Page-Bottorff and Corrie Pitzer will share the stage for a spirited keynote, “The Battle Between Safety I and Safety II: Who’s Right and Who’s Wrong?” Check out our coverage and then go to ssce.nsc.org/SSCE2024 to learn more and register for the show.

Can’t make it? As I write this, work is well underway on the National Safety Council’s premier event: the 2024 NSC Safety Congress & Expo, which is scheduled for Sept. 13-18 in Orlando, FL.

Just this week I took part in a meeting of the Congress & Expo Educational Advisory Group.

I feel privileged to be invited to the meeting and look forward to it every year. It’s made up of NSC staff and highly respected, in-the-field safety professionals who volunteer their time and expertise to make sure the Technical Sessions address both traditional safety challenges and cutting-edge concepts.

I learn a lot during the meetings and always leave feeling energized. The same goes for the actual NSC Safety Congress & Expo. Once again, the Safety+Health team will be in the NSC booth and is looking forward to meeting you. Registration opens May 21, so head to congress.nsc.org to get the early-bird discount and make your plans. Hope to see you in Orlando!
