Health & Safety Guidelines
Together again, safety!

Updated: March 16, 2022

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, May 10-12. 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. This is why we will require the following from all in-person attendees at the 2022 NSC Southern Safety Conference & Expo.

  • Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination
  • A negative COVID-19 PCR test result within 72 hours of event

Face coverings will not be required as determined by the CDC in areas of low and medium COVID community levels. 

We encourage individuals who will not be able to provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test result or proof of vaccination to explore the many educational resources NSC has available online.


To upload your negative COVID-19 PCR test result within 72 hours of the event or proof of full COVID-19 vaccination, NSC is partnering with CrowdPass, an intuitive web application. Closer to the event, you'll receive an email on how to submit your information.

We have a comprehensive EHS event management plan in place to ensure the health and safety of everyone attending the 2022 NSC Southern Safety Conference & Expo. We are working closely with the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center and taking extra precautions. Please note these heatlh and safety measures will evolve based on current CDC recommendations and any building, city, state and federal mandates.


In addition to the above requirements, the following health and safety measures will implemented at the 2022 NSC Southern Safety Conference & Expo:

  • Enhanced ventilation practices
  • Regular cleaning protocols
  • Safe distancing practices
  • Limited room occupancies
  • Safe traffic flow patterns
