Do you have knowledge to share that can keep workplaces safe and healthy?
Are you good in front of a crowd?
If so, you could be a potential presenter for our Ohio Safety Congress & Expo 2018 (OSC18), the nation’s largest occupational-focused safety and health event.
We’re now accepting presentation proposals for this multi-day event, scheduled for March 7 – 9, 2018, in Columbus, Ohio.
OSC18 will feature more than 200 educational sessions taught by experts from across the nation. Topics include:
- Safety management;
- Government and regulation;
- Health, wellness and rehabilitation;
- Emergency preparedness and response;
- Workers’ compensation;
- Driving and transportation;
- Training and education;
- Personal protective equipment;
- And much more.
We are seeking one-hour educational sessions, panel discussions and live demonstrations as well as three-hour and six-hour workshops. For OSC18, we are particularly interested in topics related to slips, trips and falls, overexertion, and motor vehicle accidents. These injury types comprise more than 60 percent of Ohio’s workplace injuries.
Typical attendees include occupational safety and risk-management directors, workers’ compensation managers, health and wellness leaders, and individuals with an interest in occupational safety and health, wellness, rehabilitation and medical treatment of injured workers.
We’re accepting applications until July 31. For application guidelines and to register, visit our call for presentations site. Want to get a glimpse of the event? Take a look back at our OSC17 Twitter recap.
