Virtual Event
Dec. 9, 2020

Since the pandemic began, experts at the National Safety Council and its member and partner organizations have shared guidance, tools and solutions to address COVID-19. We have also been carefully monitoring and understanding the implications of our collective efforts to keep Americans safe and healthy. This virtual Summit will focus on our national response to the COVID-19 pandemic, today and in the future.

The Summit is aimed at helping businesses, policymakers and leaders take stock of where we stand and where we’re headed. It will explore topics including the efficacy of states’ shelter-in-place orders, how employers addressed this century’s biggest threat to workplace safety and the future world of work beyond the crisis. The Summit will also feature candid discussions, share compelling reflections and analysis, and offer solutions for working together to keep workplaces safer across the country.

Leading up to and during the event, NSC will release new reports addressing these topics and share insights and actionable data to help chart our course ahead.
