About the event
The NSC Congress & Expo is the world's largest annual "must attend" event for safety, health and environmental professionals. For more than 100 years, professionals have turned to this event for industry-leading technology, education, networking opportunities and the tried and true products and services needed to stay at the forefront and remain competitive within the industry.
In 2010, NSC introduced the Journey to Safety Excellence philosophy, which can help you and your company answer the following questions regarding its current safety program:
- Where are you now – and where do you want to be?
- How will you move forward?
- How do you manage your improvement and measure your progress?
Congress is designed to build awareness of the tools available to you and your organization as you continue down the path to safety excellence.
