(INDIANAPOLIS) — Hoosier companies wanting to boost employee productivity and morale need look no further than the state’s largest workplace safety and health conference.

On March 16-18, the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s Safety and Health Conference & Expo – Safety is Your Pot of Gold features more than 60 educational sessions and 100-plus exhibitors.

The conference takes place at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis and is presented with the Central Indiana Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers in partnership with INSafe/Indiana Department of Labor.

Gibson is the title sponsor for the three-day event, which will focus on a variety of workplace safety and health issues. Among them: injury prevention, construction safety, workplace violence, occupational health and wellness, fire protection and many other best practices.

Keynote speakers are astronaut and Indiana native David Wolf and Dr. Will Miller, who is a regular Bob & Tom radio show guest. They will share entertaining advice during the opening general session and March 18 general session, respectively.

“This event offers a wealth of safety and health information for Hoosier workplaces,” says Kerri Begley, Indiana Chamber vice president of conferences and special events. “This knowledge can make workers feel better about their job and be more successful at doing it. Both lead to having a positive effect on a company’s bottom line.”

The Governor’s Workplace Safety Awards Luncheon on March 18 will honor Hoosier organizations that have made safety and health a priority.

Cost for the three-day conference and expo is $499; other registration options are offered. Additionally, various continuing education credits are available. For more information or to register, go to www.insafetyconf.com or call (800) 824-6885.
