Safety Professionals: Registration is Open for PPSA’s Annual Safety and Health Conference

Exciting educational and networking opportunities are in store for PPSA’s 80th Annual Safety and Health Conference taking place June 9-12, 2024 at The Vinoy Resort in St. Petersburg, FL.

Get ready to join safety professionals throughout the forest products supply chain for two-and-a-half-days of educational sessions, safety strategies, and critical updates. This is your opportunity to talk shop, connect with peers, and become inspired by other leaders with vital face-to-face networking.

Patrick Nelson, CEO, Loyalty Point Leadership, is kicking off this year’s conference with his keynote presentation, “Humanizing Safety: A Roadmap for Organizational Safety through Individual Empowerment”. In this engaging session, you’ll learn to create individual buy-in and commitment to new safety programs, discover ways to positively influence and re-engage stakeholders in existing safety programs, and how to demonstrate ‘Safety ROI’ where safe workplace cultures create profitable outcomes.

On Tuesday, you’ll have the novel opportunity to learn about the three principles of engagement found in a piano bar from author, speaker and former dueling pianist Gregory Offner’s keynote, “Tip Jar Culture.” You’ll leave the session with a framework that helps create a sustainable engagement strategy that appeals to broad and diverse employee groups, as well as three tools to implement simple, but effective, shifts in work experiences to eliminate three major frustrations which can cause employee attrition.

Learn more about the keynotes.

At this year’s conference you’ll learn the most up-to-date, industry-specific information to help keep you, your mill and your employees prepared to make every day a safe one.

This is your opportunity to dive into highly relevant and timely topics like:

  • Human & Organizational Performance (HOP) Implementation
  • Robotics and Safety
  • Converting
  • Railroad Safety
  • Recovery Boiler Area Safety
