IWLA Safety & Risk Conference


Warehouse logistics is hard work and companies need to work just as hard to keep employees safe. The IWLA Safety & Risk Conference helps you.


Warehouse logistics companies that put safety programs into action benefit from reduced workers’ compensation claims while building a more attractive workplace for retaining employees. The IWLA Safety & Risk Conference program includes the latest safety regulations, practices and crisis-management strategies for warehouse logistics organizations.


The IWLA Safety & Risk Conference highlights the most important safety compliance regulations, issues and strategies for incorporating safety into the company culture. The program recently included these topics:

  • Food Safety Modernization Act compliance and enforcement.
  • U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s common violations and new regulations.
  • U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration inspections and how to avoid them.
  • Best human resource practices for retaining and hiring drivers and how to conduct testing processes legally.
  • U.S. Affordable Care Act and staying compliance with a temporary workforce.
  • Crisis management techniques and how to respond during a disaster or when accidents occur.
  • Labeling practices in compliance with the Global Harmonization requirements.
