Safety 2012 to study use of safety products in the workplace
At Safety 2012, which will be held June 3-5 in Denver, Colorado, participants including safety, health, and environmental professionals working across all industries will learn about the latest advancements in personal protective equipment and the challenges posed by supplying safety products on a global scale.
The conference will include how safety products are used for activities involving high heat, molten metal, and hot liquid in chemical and petrochemical environments. Also, participants will learn about the challenges associated with supplying safety products internationally. Often, these hardships are identified in hindsight through trial and error - a method that can come with fines, worker injuries, and fatalities.
Presentations will be given by some of the leading minds in the safety, health, and environmental industries, and will come in the form of lectures, case studies, and small group discussions. These presentations will help employers develop solutions to challenges faced in a wide variety of workplaces.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires the use of safety products to reduce employee exposure to dangerous hazards. Employers are responsible for providing the appropriate safety products to protect their workers. Ensure worker safety by supplying these products, including hard hats, work gloves, safety glasses, and fall protection.
