Why Should You Attend MSCI’s Safety Conference? Click Here To Find Out

Registration for the Metals Service Center Institute’s (MSCI) 2017 Safety Conference is now open. This conference brings people together to tackle the most urgent safety issues facing the industrial metal industry today. MSCI gathers members of the metals industry and metals safety experts to help its members discover and design the answers to their toughest safety problems.

This year’s conference will feature Jeff Skiles, co-pilot of U.S. Airways Flight 1549, which made a crash landing in New York in 2009. Skiles was scared on that day—but he also was prepared. “We have developed systems over the last 25 years that allowed us to be successful,” Skiles said. “And those systems are not particular to the airline industry. They transfer readily, as they must, to any business or organization where safety is the primary concern.” Click here to learn more about Skiles’ story, and to see how it applies to the metals industry.

Fred Rine, a nationally recognized leader in workplace safety, also will give a keynote address at this year’s conference. Rine created an attitude-based safety culture training program that has been attended by more than 500,000 people and has contributed to significant improvements in workplace safety at companies all around the country. Rine also created one of the most well-regarded workplace safety programs in the country during his career at FedEx.
