Indiana’s Largest Safety And Health Conference Returns February 27

Workplace safety doesn’t happen by accident. It requires planning and teamwork from people at all levels of an organization. The state’s largest safety and health event takes place later this month and can help businesses mitigate risks, improve safety and stay current on key issues.

The 2023 Indiana Safety and Health Conference & Expo on February 27-March 1 will feature more than 70 educational sessions to keep Hoosier workers safe on the job. Among the pressing topics to be discussed: effective safety communications, strategies that work, supervising lessons and common misconceptions.

The three-day event is presented by the Central Indiana Chapter of the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) and Indiana Chamber of Commerce in partnership with INSafe Indiana and the Coalition for Construction Safety. Indiana Safety & Supply Co. is the conference sponsor.

“We can’t wait to welcome safety professionals from across the state and are grateful for our impressive slate of speakers who will share insights and offer motivation,” relays Kerri Begley, vice president of business education and events for the Indiana Chamber. “Attendees can be assured they’ll be heading back to work armed with a great deal of new information to help their workforce remain safe.”

The conference’s two keynote speakers are Indiana Motor Speedway President Doug Boles, who will impart the importance of safety in the racing industry, and Patrick Nelson, CEO of Loyalty Point Leadership. Nelson will present a roadmap for organizational safety through individual empowerment and explain how to leverage a leadership strategy that has resulted in a 57% reduction in the total recordable incident rate or TRIR (for Fortune 500 organizations).

The forklift rodeo returns for another year. Forklift operators will showcase their driving abilities in an obstacle course February 28 and complete challenges as quickly and efficiently as possible. All forklift rodeo participants must be certified to operate a lift.

On day three of the conference, the 2023 Governor’s Workplace Safety Awards will be presented during the lunch hour.
