A newly expanded educational safety event for the aluminum industry, the Aluminum Safety Summit, will take place on October 15-16, 2019, at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel in Rosemont, IL. The event was developed by the Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC) in cooperation with the Aluminum Anodizers Council (AAC), the Aluminum Association (AA), and the Aluminum Recyclers Council (ARC). The Summit promises to provide comprehensive and valuable safety-related educational information for those in the aluminum industry.
“There are many safety events presented throughout the manufacturing industry, but the Aluminum Safety Summit was designed to fill a need to address safety concerns specific to the aluminum manufacturing environment,” said Chip Dollins, AEC Safety Team leader and vice president of operations at Service Center Metals (SCM) in Prince George, VA.
The two-day event will cover a host of different topics related to safety, including: aluminum extrusion, anodizing, recycling, casting, and aluminum industry safety improvement opportunities. Safety personnel and plant managers working in the aluminum industry at every skill level can benefit from the educational sessions that address a wealth of issues. The Summit plans to provide engaging experiences, like interactive roundtable discussions and a tabletop expo featuring safety technologies and personal protective equipment (PPE).
The Aluminum Safety Summit will be comprised of general and breakout sessions that explore safety management issues, safety best practices, and creating a culture of safety for workers in the aluminum industry. Case studies exemplifying how companies in and around the aluminum industry improved their safety practices will be shared so attendees can get tips about how to improve from real world experience.
Registration is open to personnel from member companies of the four organizing associations. For a complete program and registration details visit the website at www.aec.org/aluminumsafetysummit.
