OXNARD, Calif., April 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- DEKRA, a global leader in safety with a vision to be the global partner for a safe world, is launching the Safety in Action® Conference: The Digital Experience. This virtual conference will feature over 40 sessions and 25 leading industry experts in the world of workplace safety covering current issues and challenges that safety leaders are facing.
"We are excited to enter the world of virtual conferences as we continue to look for new platforms to give safety leaders the insight and knowledge they need in efficient and immediate ways," said Don Groover, General Manager at DEKRA North America (NA) Consulting.
The 2020 conference was originally scheduled for late March in Nashville. However, after monitoring the global spread of COVID-19, leaders at DEKRA decided to pivot to a virtual event to protect the health and well-being of attendees and staff.
The Safety in Action Digital Experience will include 40 interactive sessions involving 25 leading industry experts. The sessions will be live on June 11 from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. EDT. Afterwards, they will remain as on-demand content through the end of 2020. Features like real-time chat and discussion boards will allow attendees to network, ask questions, and engage with peers in the industry as well as safety leaders
Attendees can expect sessions in the following subject areas:
- Improving Human Performance Reliability
- Supervisor and Manager Development
- Behavioral Safety and Exposure Reduction
- Industrial Ergonomics
- Safety Technology & Intelligence Gathering
- Serious Injury and Fatality Prevention
"We thank all of our 2020 registrants for their patience as we navigated this new opportunity to give them the same conference, they know but virtually, available to them whenever they want. Safety is too important, especially in a crisis like this pandemic, not to create a place for knowledge sharing and best practices," said Groover.
