 “The pandemic forced everyone to focus so much energy on keeping their workforce and customers safe from the virus, and it was easy to sort of let off the gas pedal on other safety initiatives,” Joe Venhuizen, Director of Membership and Programs, Envision Greater Fond du Lac, said. “We want to use this event to help safety and human resource professionals address their blind spots before they become issues.”

Safety Day 2021 will include sessions on the mental health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic; building a culture of security; how to prepare for an OSHA visit; and a panel discussion with local safety professionals. The keynote, Purpose and Compassion at Work, will be delivered by John McHugh, Director of Corporate Communications, Leadership Development, and Training at Kwik Trip Inc.

“We’ve put together a heavy-hitting lineup of experts to present very timely information,” Craig Schwartz, Quality/Facilities Manager, Marchant Schmidt and Chair of the Safety Council, said. “For anyone working in human resources or safety, this is a can’t-miss event with a ton of practical takeaways.”

Safety Day 2021 is an ideal event for those new to the field, as well as those seasoned team members. Safety Council member and Fond du Lac SHRM member registration is $60 per person.
