Our Mission

A Partnership between Local Business and the NC Department of Labor

It is our goal to provide exceptional Occupational Safety and Health learning opportunities for all businesses and their associates through an annual outreach program.  We focus on the prevention of workplace accidents and injuries by providing new, proactive solutions that make a positive impact on area business results and the community.  We emphasize the need for continuing formal education and skill development necessary to influence and maintain strong safety cultures in our workplaces.

Current and Timely Information.
Thoughtfully Planned.

The Charlotte Regional Safety and Health Conference is thoughtfully planned to provide current and timely information on occupational safety and health challenges employers and employees face.  Numerous exhibitors will be present to provide the latest information and cutting-edge technology related to safety and health for your employees.

Safety and Health Professionals, Training Managers, Operations and Plant Managers, Safety Committee Members, Supervisors, Maintenance Personnel, and anyone who is responsible for safety and health in the workplace.
