Dear Colleagues:
The Congress on Safety in Engineering and Industry is the first event of its kind—and I strongly encourage you to be part of it.

The inaugural installment of the congress, scheduled for June 21-24, 2020 in Philadelphia, brings together the expertise of 8 leading engineering professional societies and the National Academies to offer a dynamic, cross-sector learning and networking opportunity that addresses shared safety challenges.

Most safety and risk practices are not proprietary and many can be applied in an array of settings and situations, However, no space has existed where decision-makers from different industries, academic institutions, and government agencies and laboratories could share best practices, with the objective of identifying core safety principles that can benefit all. Until now.

The Congress on Safety in Engineering and Industry 2020 (Safety Congress 2020) offers you that opportunity to convene with leadership across industries and the breadth of science and engineering disciplines to gain cutting edge insights that you can implement in your own organization. The benefits of participation will continue long after the event adjourns as you extend your network to new colleagues and perspectives beyond your current frame of reference. I invite you to review the topics currently under development for a preview of the dynamic and valuable program that you can expect.

In keeping with its multi-industry approach, Safety Congress 2020 is envisioned to support a broad cross-section of management and safety professionals in expanding their skill sets for the advancement of their organizations—and themselves. “Leading Safety into the Future” is the theme for Safety Congress 2020—I look forward to your joining us on that journey.
