Springfield hosts Safety, Health & Environmental Conference for the first time

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3/KSPR) – Manufacturers from across the Ozarks will meet in Springfield Wednesday morning for the Missouri Association of Manufacturers (MAM) largest event ever.

The Mid-America Safety, Health & Environmental Conference & Expo aims to provide attendees with practical, relevant information on issues that are a top priority for today’s manufacturers. The goal of the event is to give training in general safety, environmental compliance, occupational medicine, workers’ compensation, and also to recognize safety leadership in an interactive way.

Something that will set the event apart is the “Run, Hide, Fight: Surviving an Active Shooter or Violent Intruder” training on the final morning of the event. Kim Inman, the Chief Executive Director for the Missouri Association of Manufacturers, said the trainer for the session reminds people to just stay aware of their surroundings. “Those hairs that pop up on the back of your neck are there for a reason,” said Inman. “You should always know when to run, you should always know when to fight, but you should always know when to hide too.”

The Missouri Association of Manufacturers (MAM) will present the Mid-America Safety, Health & Environmental Conference & Expo starting Wednesday, May 2 through Friday, May 4 at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds E-Plex. The “Run, Hide, Fight: Surviving an Active Shooter or Violent Intruder,” event requires separate registration and businesses outside the manufacturing field are allowed to attend.

The registration prices are listed below, there are lowered prices for members of the Missouri Association of Manufacturers (MAM):
2 Day Conference Registration = $460
1 Day Conference Registration = $350
Run, Hide, Fight: Surviving an Active Shooter or Violent Intruder = $75
