Responsible Distribution Track - OSHA Top 10 List
Sustainable Solutions for By-Products/Waste Streams
Sustainability goes beyond simply being a good steward of our planet and doing the right thing. In this session, Brian Burns will look at Sustainable Solutions Platforms, how to avoid common disposal practices by seeking responsible alternative solutions for by-product streams, and mining value from end-of-life products ( “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure “).

Third-Party logistics providers are truly an extension of your operations, and the safe and reliable transportation and storage of chemicals throughout the supply chain is a top priority for all. This interactive panel discussion will bring together logistical experts from Responsible Distribution-verified warehouses and carrier companies. Learn best practices in evaluating, assessing, and enhancing your relationship with your supply chain partners so you can convey Responsible Distribution throughout the supply chain.
The neuroscience of performance, minimizing risk, and safety has everything to do with how each of us aligns our conscious and subconscious mind. Radical Safety is an approach that is the opposite of conventional wisdom. Vince Poscente will present a formula based on three decades of research on how ‘mindset’ is established and sustained. When people change their minds, they change their behavior, for good. Within a safety culture, everyone can be the architect of their truth. Change your truth around safety, and you can change the organization’s safety culture. Attend this session to make a long-term impact on your safety conscious culture.

This presentation will examine several major events (from the Chemical Safety Board Library) that speak to these risks and confidence issues. Additionally the participants will be provided with generalized concepts to apply to everyday world-of-work and life activities.
