We hope you’re enjoying everything OSC19 has to offer! Our final day will feature a host of lectures, workshops and another live demo covering important safety and health topics.
Day two was a busy one! Colette Carlson, founder of Speak Your Truth, Inc., kicked off the day with an informative and fun talk about the importance of connecting and communicating to form the crucial relationships that drive productivity, engagement and collaboration.
She said the most successful people are those who can effectively communicate and connect.
Below, Colette gives a humorous demonstration of all the things we must worry about in a day. Maybe you just had to be there.
Our Division of Safety & Hygiene Superintendent Abe Al-Tarawneh led an educational session on the future of the workers’ compensation industry and occupational safety and health programming. Abe talked about the advances in science and technology that have led to major changes to business operations, resulting in structural changes to the economy and workforce utilization.
We presented four Ohio employers with Safety Innovation Awards yesterday.

We heard from a long-time safety professional whose catastrophic motorcycle accident inspired him to share his message. He told attendees that “whether you’re at work or at home, all it takes is a split second for something to happen and change lives forever.” Read more in yesterday’s blog post, ‘A split second’ nearly cost safety expert his life.
And finally, we said farewell to our 315 Expo Marketplace exhibitors yesterday afternoon. Thanks to all our vendors who make it possible for us to offer OSC free of charge!
We’re looking forward to a great last day of OSC19!
