On October 14, 2016 Teresa Chee, Tribal Risk Management Division Health and Safety Officer had the privilege to attend the 2016 National Safety Council (NSC) Congress & Expo in Anaheim, Calif.
Founded in 1913 and chartered by Congress, the NSC is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to save lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes and communicates, and on the road through leadership, research, education and advocacy.
NSC Congress & Expo attracts more than 14,000 safety, health and environmental professionals from over 60 countries, offering technical sessions, professional development seminars (PDS), keynote speakers and solutions from more than 1,000 exhibiting companies. This year’s keynote address was given by National Football League (NFL) legend Terry Bradshaw.
Furthermore, Teresa was able to attend two PDSs: Transforming Safety Committees Into High Functioning Safety Teams: Building Safety Leadership Capacity and Overcoming Barriers to Effective Safety and Health Communication and Training Techniques.
One take away, amongst many that Teresa hopes to bring back to the Tribe and implement in her position is her commitment to working with the Permanent Fund Safety Team and deputizing everybody to be a safety professional in order to help identify and reduce or eliminate safety and health hazards.
