Jim Elzinga, founder of Safety Culture Solutions, is known for conquering Mount Everest as one of Canada’s few elite Alpinists. He regaled attendees at today’s 2016 Indiana Safety and Health Conference & Expo in Indianapolis about his experiences during his speech, “Triumph and Tragedy on Mount Everest.”

You won’t want to miss these inspiring keynote presentations:
- Jim Elzinga (opening general session: March 22): founder and president of Heroic Hearts, and one of Canada’s elite alpinists
- Oliver Luck (morning general session: March 23): former quarterback of the Houston Oilers, father of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck and executive vice president of regulatory affairs for the National Collegiate Athletic Association

“I think people learn a lot through storytelling. My story is really around values and leadership, and I see those two kind of going hand in hand,” he asserts. “In industrial settings, those are probably the two most important things that relate (most) back to safety.”
The Chamber’s largest conference also will include a hands-on confined space rescue workshop with a mobile confined space simulator; free safety, health and environmental career counseling; the opportunity to interact with 100-plus exhibitors; and much more!
A special highlight is the Governor’s Workplace Safety Awards, which will honor organizations that have made safety and health a priority. Award applications are due no later than February 1.
