Tips on how to invest in your frontline managers and cultivate their communication skills will be shared.

Lisa Battaglia, founder and president of Battaglia Communications, will discuss how to focus your marketing efforts internally to create culture buy-in and an engaged team that makes the right safety decisions even when no one is looking. She will be joined by Brian Fielkow, recognized in the CEOs who “Get It” category by the National Safety Council in 2022. Brian will share his experience using marketing and communications to build a culture of safety.

Thursday, March 16 (2-2:45 p.m. CT): Social Harms: The Psychological Phenomenon and The Hidden Costs of Roadway Fatalities. Register to attend now.
With traffic fatalities on the rise, safety leaders as well as psychologists are determined to find out what is driving risky behaviors behind the wheel. Speed, impairment, distraction and fatigue are contributing factors in more than 90% of crashes. Impulsive behaviors increased during the height of the pandemic when traffic volume decreased and the roads were largely wide open. Today, traffic levels have returned to near-normal, but we’re seeing many of these risky behaviors continue unchecked. In this session, law enforcement liaison Michael Munson will discuss situational factors that can increase risk-taking, the costs and how to respond effectively.
