Celebrate the 'YEar of Safety'

THURSDAY, AUGUST 3, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois

NWPCA hosted a regional safety meeting at the Four Points by Sheraton Chicago O'Hare on Thursday, August 3, 2017. The full-day educational event included leading safety experts: Adele L. Abrams, attorney and OSHA safety professional; William Koffel, fire code safety consultant; Ed Johannesen, Director, Manufacturing Engineering & Facilities for UniCarriers Americas Corporation, a forklift industry leader and Industrial Truck Association member.



The dynamic program included presentations, panel discussions, case studies, and healthy amounts of networking and roundtable/Q&A sessions with pallet manufacturing and pallet recycling colleagues. The session was designed for plant managers, general managers, CEO's, and all involved in implementing proven best safety practices. 

Attendees left with latest information and tools to help them avoid all the "gotchas" while improving overall safety performance:

Case Studies

In addition to the speaker presentations, a panel discussion of situations and case studies that apply to pallet manufacturing and recycling facilities rounded out the program. Post-show, we still welcome your input if you would like to submit a scenario or question for inclusion future panel discussions, please send to Dr. Brad Gething, NWPCA Director of Science & Technology Integration.
