Austin, TX (PRWEB) July 28, 2016
Alchemy Systems will host its annual food and workplace safety conference on September 13 – 15, 2016 in Austin, Texas, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. This year’s theme is Unlocking the Potential of Your Frontline with a focus on engaging frontline workers and supervisors to drive positive safety cultures and lowering risk.
The three-day conference is a must-attend event for food safety and workplace safety professionals and will offer attendees the opportunity to learn best practices from world-class companies, network with hundreds of their peers, and get the latest on upcoming regulatory changes.
The conference keynote speaker will be Captain David Marquet, former nuclear submarine commander for the Unites States Navy. He is the author of Turn the Ship Around! A True Story of Turning Followers Into Leaders, a fascinating inside look at how the lowest performing submarine in the U.S. fleet rose to become its highest.
“We are really excited to bring together industry experts from JBS, Tyson Foods, Red Diamond, Aryzta, Golden State Foods, C&S Wholesalers, Safeway/Albertsons, Seaboard Foods and many others to share their perspectives,” says Jeff Eastman, CEO of Alchemy Systems. In addition, leaders from SQF, BRC and the former head of OSHA will provide updates on the changing regulatory landscape. And risk, audit, and legal experts will share their recent experiences with food and workplace safety incidents.
The conference will also include a separate all-day executive-leadership seminar in partnership with the Grocery Manufacturers Association – Science and Education Foundation (GMA SEF). “Recent food incident court cases have had significant impact on companies involved, directly affecting their brands and bottom lines,” says Brian Bedard, executive director of GMA SEF. “The seminar will help food company leaders across functional lines to better understand the roles, responsibilities and strategies necessary to preserve and strengthen the food safety culture within a company.”
