National Safety Conference: Building Safer Workplaces

By Dodd Day | 09/25/2015

Like Concentra, all safety professionals and company leaders are working extremely hard to “Build Safer Workplaces.” However, Franklin Covey said it best: “You need to sharpen your saw,” which means preserving and enhancing the greatest asset you have - you. It also means having a balanced program for self-renewal in your life.

Safety professionals and leaders at all levels must take time from their busy schedule to sharpen their safety saw with professional development opportunities like the National Safety Council (NSC) conference. Attendees will learn best practices and innovative solutions to common and unique workplace hazards. This conference will not only help you sharpen your skills professionally, but also help foster a culture of safety in your workplace.

An effective safety culture requires three key components

  1. An Executive Commitment 
  2. Director and Manager Involvement
  3. Supervisor and Employee Ownership

The NSC has enlisted nationally recognized speakers and presenters who will provide insight into all three safety culture components. Additionally, there are five sessions you don’t want to miss:

  • Giving Safety a Brand Identity
  • Building Practical Safety Mindfulness
  • Achieving Safety Excellence Through Leading Indicators
  • Integrating Continuous Improvement with Risk Reduction Initiatives
  • Leadership at All Levels: The Lessons and Realities of Changing Safety Culture

Concentra is a national health and well-being organization focused on improving America’s health, one patient at a time. As a consumer health care services leader, Concentra delivers primary and urgent care services, occupational medicine, physical therapy, as well as prevention and wellness programs.
