The meat and poultry industry is focused on safety. Keeping the nearly half a million industry employees safe on the job each day leads to success in business. This conference is designed to address the most critical challenges in workplace safety, with take-home information and action items to improve safety in meat and poultry processing facilities.  Conference sessions will include lessons learned and real world experiences of industry companies to maximize peer to peer learning opportunities.  In addition, industry experts and workplace safety leaders will provide advice and guidance on how to develop and maintain the programs required to continually improve safety within your organization. The conference will also address regulatory and legal issues that safety professionals need to know and understand to ensure compliance.  This conference is ideal for plant managers, group safety managers, EHS managers, risk managers, warehouse managers, and anyone else with responsibilities in workplace safety.  The conference includes an evening reception on Monday night, and concludes with an awards luncheon on Tuesday which will feature the winners of the NAMI Worker Safety Awards Program.
