Sixth annual Safety Champions Conference set for April 14-15

February 22, 2022

SMOHIT’s 2022 Safety Champions Conference is all virtual and will take place in your home or office.

This year’s conference theme is “Occupational Wellness” and focuses on the whole person — body, mind and spirit — in alignment with SMOHIT’s continuing mission to build and nurture a culture and climate of safety and health in the sheet metal industry. The conference is an excellent venue for sharing information, ideas and solutions that can be implemented at the local level right away. It creates a forum for dialogue and critical thinking about workplace mental health challenges and promotes help-seeking and help-giving, with an emphasis on suicide prevention.

The conference features interactive workshops facilitated by Phillip Ragain and Kevin Pope of the RAD Group; participation from a diverse group of attendees; skills development; a search for solutions to safety challenges in attendees’ areas; best practices; Safety Champion and Safety Design awards ceremonies; valuable raffle prizes; a gift welcome packet and much more. You must register by April 1, 2022 in order to receive your gift welcome packet.

Kevin Pope will also serve as keynote for the conference, speaking on the subject of lessons learned from leading high-performance teams. Pope is a retired 25-year Navy SEAL Master Chief with 11 international deployments, including eight combat tours. Throughout his career, he has managed the operational requirements for 8,600 personnel, including SEAL, SWCC, support technicians and civilian government employees deployed to 78 countries daily.

The conference is open to all SMART and SMACNA members in good standing.
