Thanks to everyone for coming to OSC16, WE hope you found your road to safety!
Wednesday morning registration kicked off the three-day event.
Administrator Steve Buehrer opened OSC16 to a packed house, with many watching in the overflow room.
Our three general session speakers spoke to full houses as well, each bringing a message all could take back to work and put to use.
The first general session speaker, L. Casey Choosewood, M.D. talked about the importance of Total Worker Health. Watch video.
Jason Barger took a look at how to handle our busy schedules.
Mark Kowaleski showed how NASA does safety from Earth to Space.
Lots of networking and purchasing in the exhibit Hall!
MCO’s, safety councils and PEOs were at OSC16 to help employers and employees.
Your Road to Safety might have taken you by the BWC Service Station where we offered full service for all things workers’ compensation, including prevention of accidents and care of injured workers.
There were more than 30 tracks to choose from, and almost all of them offered some form of continuing education.
Many took advantage of the hands-on experience at the OSC16 demo area.
Our Safety Innovations booth spawned lots of good conversation about making workplaces safer.
Safety Innovations Awards honored some of Ohio’s innovative thinkers.
First place and People’s Choice award went to the same company, Coopers Farm Feed & Animal.
Also, running concurrently to OSC16 was the Ohio Workers’ Compensation Medical & Health Symposium where pain and nueromusculoskeletal were the hot topics for the two-day symposium.
