Health & Safety Guidelines
Together again, safety!

Updated December 2, 2021

The National Safety Council (NSC) is excited to welcome our attendees to the annual Southern Safety Conference & Expo at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, in New Orleans, LA. NSC is committed to creating an event experience where our participants, partners and employees can safely and effectively conduct business, network and learn.

As America's leading nonprofit safety advocate, we will continue to follow scientific research and data to put health and safety first, just as we have for over 100 years. Which is why the National Safety Council will require proof of vaccination and face masks worn by all attendees at this year's NSC Southern Safety Conference & Expo.

We have a comprehensive EHS event management plan in place to ensure the health and safety of everyone attending the NSC Sourthern Safety Conference & Expo. We are working closely with the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center and taking extra precautions. Please note these safety and health measures will evolve based on current CDC recommendations and any building, city, state and federal mandates.

Highlighted below are some of the safety and health measures that may be required at the 2022 NSC Southern Safety Conference & Expo: 

  • Proof of vaccination requirement
  • Face mask requirement
  • Daily health checks
  • Enhanced ventilation practices
  • Regular cleaning protocols
  • Safe distancing practices
  • Limited room occupancies
  • Safe traffic flow patterns

We encourage individuals who will not be able to provide proof of vaccination to explore the many educational resources NSC has available online. As safety leaders, we share a common understanding that vaccinations are a key component of a robust safety protocol for in-person engagements.

In addition, by participating in-person, you understand and acknowledge that you risk exposure to and contraction of potentially dangerous disease (COVID-19). You understand and acknowledge the risks associated with diseases and viruses and you are fully aware that exposure may result in, including without limitation, infection, illness, injury, or otherwise. In consideration of the above, you hereby release National Safety Council of any liability related to your attendance.
