INDIANAPOLIS—The Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers will hosts its 2015 Environmental Health and Safety Summit June 11-12 at Ice Miller L.L.P., in Columbus, Ohio.
ARPM said environmental health and safety experts will share best leadership and safety practices with manufacturing executives from across the U.S. The organization said the precarious balancing act between a worker's health and the safety performance of the workplace shaped the agenda for the summit, which will include classes, discussions and presentations focused on workplace safety.
The summit will include learning and networking opportunities covering topics such as chemical safety, SDS labels, NFPA 70E, OSHA regulations, ergonomics, mill safety and environmental audits. Roundtable discussions will include behavior-based safety and near miss accidents. ARMP said the summit has been designed to provide high-level safety professionals with ideas to improve workplace safety.
The keynote address, “How to Involve, Empower and Engage Employees in a Safety Journey?”, will review safety process metrics, how often those metrics are reviewed and trends that can change those regulations. The presentation also will cover education programs, audits, hazards and risk assessments, and awareness activities.
For the first time, the ARPM will present safety awards designed to recognize companies in the rubber manufacturing industry that have achieved world-class safety techniques that go beyond average regulations. The awards will be given based on information from OSHA 300's log of work-related injuries and illness.
