Registration Opens for Safety 2019 Conference in New Orleans

The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) announced that registration is open for the Safety 2019 Professional Development Conference and Exposition, the nation’s largest conference for occupational safety and health professionals.

The conference expects to draw more than 5,000 attendees from 40 countries, and it is set for June 9-12 at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

Safety 2019 exposes attendees to best practices, industry trends, and the latest product innovations while offering rich networking experiences. Educational sessions provide practical information that safety professionals can put to use now and in the future. A survey of past attendees found that 98% would recommend the global conference to a colleague.

“ASSP members around the globe protect workers in every industry, so this dynamic event goes a long way in supporting their professional mission,” said Mary Silva, chair of the ASSP Professional Development Conference Planning Committee. “It’s a place to find real solutions to your top challenges while meeting and learning from industry trendsetters.”

Safety 2019 will offer more than 240 concurrent educational sessions categorized by experience level and taught by some of the greatest minds in safety. More than 600 exhibitors will present the latest products, technologies, and techniques in the field. Attendees will experience a plenary town hall and a mix of engaging general sessions, including an inspirational address from Olympic gold medalist Scott Hamilton, who has fought through childhood illness, a cancer diagnosis, and recurring pituitary tumors.

All paid attendees will receive free access to more than 150 concurrent session recordings, enabling them to catch sessions they missed.
