201410ASC-32As busy safety professionals, it’s important that we find the time to stay on top of the latest innovations and regulations that are critical to protecting employees and improving safety records. 

Returning for the seventh straight year, the Louisiana Governor’s Safety & Health Conference (LGSHC) offers reliable, local resources and updates to accelerate your safety skills.

Last year, conference attendees explored various topics that enable a safe workplace while satisfying some of their continuing education requirements and earning continuing education units. Topics included complacency, hazard management and recognition, JSAs, basic ergonomic principles, wellness, communication strategies, bullying, violence, quantifying risks, nanomaterials in construction, recordkeeping, hearing conservation, leadership, IH monitoring, drugs in the workplace, air quality safety and the economic boom in Louisiana.

Sessions were geared toward those who have been in the health and safety field for years, as well as those who are just beginning their careers. Regardless of experience levels, attendees left each session with a sample plan or specific knowledge that applied directly to their jobs.
