2016 Environmental, Safety & Health, and Training Conference Meets in Baltimore

The Environmental, Safety & Health, and Training Conference hosted three highly interactive roundtables in Baltimore this year. Attendees learned important strategy points from speaker Tisha Schuller. Following the keynote address, several SGA members were recognized for different awards including: humanitarian, meritorious, safety videos, environmental excellence in stewardship and technology and conservation, committee service and outstanding leadership. During the conference sessions, the Environmental Roundtable hosted three different tracks including Air, Construction and Waste and Water, discussing everything from air regulatory updates to FERC issues. The Safety & Health Roundtable held practical sessions on emergency response, changing industry standards and everyday challenges like ergonomics, driving and safety culture. The Training Professional Roundtable delved in to updates on the Operator Qualification as well the importance of Nano-Learning.

While the core of the conference was knowledge sharing, we purposefully scheduled some fun activities for attendees as well. The first morning of ESHT, Amec Foster Wheeler hosted a tour at the Masonville Cove Environmental Education Center. The second night, all attendees were invited to an Old Fashioned Bal’mer Block Party hosted by R. Christopher Goodwin & Associates and AECOM. The block party featured Baltimore pit beef and Maryland crabs galore including native cultural dancers and tours of the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum.

All in all, ESHT 2016 was a stellar conference with something for everyone. This would not have been possible without the help of the many committee members who helped with the planning as well as all of our 2016 sponsors.
