Celebrate the 'YEar of Safety'

THURSDAY, AUGUST 3, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois

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


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

You will leave with latest information and tools to help you avoid all the "gotchas" while improving overall safety performance:

  • OSHA priority emphasis areas and combustible dust, noise, guarding, housekeeping, walking/working surface rule and what to expect in the new Administration
  • Fire Code resources to help ensure facilities comply with the new fire codes for both the National Fire Protection Association and International Code Council.
  • Forklift safety, best practices and new approaches, from an industry expert. 

Case Studies

In addition to the speaker presentations, a panel discussion of situations and case studies that apply to pallet manufacturing and recycling facilities will round out the program. If you would like to submit a scenario or question for inclusion in this panel discussion, please send to Dr. Brad Gething, NWPCA Director of Science & Technology Integration.
