Registration is open for the American Meat Institute Conference on Worker Safety, Human Resources and the Environment, to be held March 9-10, at the Hyatt Regency Crown Center, Kansas City, Mo.  

This year’s conference will feature a number of concurrent education sessions on worker safety, human resources and environmental issues.

AMI will be presenting the environmental achievement awards, the environmental recognition awards and the worker safety awards during an awards ceremony and reception on the evening of March 9.

In addition, a new pre-conference workshop on electrical safety will be held on March 8 to offer attendees more value at a single conference. This one-day course is designed to train employers, management and supervisors about electrical safety that includes arc flash/blast protection for maintenance operations in an industrial or commercial environment. The course will discuss Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations, NFPA 70E, best practices and related electrical hazards.  The course will be presented from a non-electricians/non-engineers perspective.
