Biggest HSE trends of 2017

Apart from the main theme of “Race to Zero,” two other major trends will also take center stage at this year’s NSC Expo:

Adapting traditional workplace safety strategies for the 21st century

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, recent years have seen admirable decreases in workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses for businesses of all sizes. But for industries to adapt to innovative technologies and widening intergenerational workforce dynamics, leaders must re-examine and restructure their safety programs for this new era of enterprise.

The latest regulatory changes (and how to comply with them)

When are shifting OSHA compliance standards not on the agenda at an NSC Expo? Another year, another batch of regulatory challenges for HSE professionals to face.

Exhibitors and presenters will dig into the details on issues, including OSHA’s controversial final rule requiring the electronic submission of recordkeeping data.

In addition to helping safety professionals comply with new regulations, many sessions at the show will also provide tips on how to strategically manage safety performance, as well as related labor and employment law risks, under a changing OSHA and new presidential administration.
