Leaders in the environmental health and safety industry will meet to discuss ways Florida businesses can keep employees and customers safe during the coronavirus era.

Hosted by the Florida Chamber Safety Council (FCSC), a state chapter of the National Safety Council, the Southeastern Leadership Conference on Safety, Health and Sustainability is scheduled for May 10-12 at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando.

For the in-person conference, the FCSC expects to attract business leaders in the environmental health and safety sector from across the Southeast. The event will feature safety training and keynote speakers like Heather MacDougall, vice president of Worldwide of Workplace Health and Safety at Amazon, and Dan Regouby, Safety and Risk Reduction Specialist with the City of Orlando.

“Florida’s leading companies care deeply about the safety and health of their employees and customers, as well as sustainable practices. And the Florida Chamber Safety Council’s annual conference aims to help safety, health and sustainability leaders make Florida the safest, healthiest and most sustainable state in America,” said Chamber Safety Council President Katie Yeutter.

The FCSC plans to administer safety measures for COVID, including rapid on-site COVID testing, temperature scanning, and sanitation stations. A blood drive will also include antibody testing. FCSC is calling these measures “Peace of Mind Promise.”

“The Southeastern Safety, Health and Leadership is shaping up to be America’s premier best practices and training event for EHS and related professionals, and we’re looking forward to our Disney event to show the world Florida’s leadership,” Yeutter said.

Conference events include industry research, professional development, and networking for those who aim to balance a passion for safety, health and sustainability with a competitive business agenda. Courses include an Occupational Safety and Health Administration update, accident and incident investigation, workplace violence, developing safety managers to corporate leaders, accountability in safety, ergonomics and disaster preparedness.

Attendees can register for the conference at the FCSC website.
