The National Safety Council hosted hundreds of EHS professionals, business leaders, academics and solution providers Jan. 31 -Feb. 2 for the inaugural Future of EHS event. Formerly known as the Campbell Institute Symposium and Work to Zero Summit and Expo, The Future of EHS 2023 featured a range of educational sessions, workshops and panel discussions led by some of the top experts in the field. The sessions covered a variety of core and emerging topics in EHS, including the latest innovations in safety technology, conversations around achieving a zero-incident workplace and the future of occupational safety in areas like diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) as well as environmental, social and governance (ESG).
The Safety Technology Pavilion also saw its return after its debut at the 2021 NSC Safety Congress and Expo. Attendees were able to see unique and interactive demonstrations of emerging products and services, talk to experts about the latest trends and innovations, and learn best practices for implementing safety technology in the workplace. This year, 10 providers were chosen to provide in-depth demonstrations for attendees: Ansell-Inteliforz, Blackline, Elokon, ERM, GoX Labs, Intelex, MākuSafe, Modjoul, Rombit, and VelocityEHS.
Attended by almost 200 professionals across industries such as manufacturing, construction and utilities, The Future of EHS 2023 also provided the opportunity for attendees to network and connect with other professionals in the industry.
