Message from our President
This year the Michigan Safety Conference celebrates the appointment of a new Chairman of the Board, Joe Galusha, AON Risk Services. At the first Board of Directors meeting that Joe chaired, he asked all volunteers to remember the reason why we are here. He asked us to “remember the reason why we have donated our time and talents to the Michigan Safety Conference.” Board Council member AJ Hale also said “to remember the 24 Michigan worker lives that have been lost this year (as of this writing).” That number doesn’t even begin to take in the number of Michigan workers that have been injured on the job. It reminded me of the goal of the Michigan Safety Conference: “to provide health and safety education to Michigan’s employers and employees so that every Michigan worker returns home safely to their family.” This year we celebrate Protecting Michigan Workers!
I feel proud to be part of a volunteer group with such a noble cause. I believe we do important work!
I enjoy the family atmosphere that the Michigan Safety Conference volunteers share, and how we all truly care about what we do. This dedicated group spends countless hours researching topics and speakers so that we can provide relevant, timely, useful information that will help protect Michigan workers.
For any of us that work in health and safety, when there is a loss, injury or fatality we feel it deeply, even when it isn’t in our own company. We are a community. We all want to look out for each other. We want to share our experiences to prevent future incidents.
In today’s busy world, we understand that it can sometimes be hard for people to take time away from their jobs to attend conferences, but we believe that this conference is well worth the time, and a true benefit to your job. It could save a life.
