In October 2005, an alliance was formed with the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) to foster safer and more healthful Lehigh Valley workplaces. This alliance formed the basis of the Lehigh Valley Safety Committee (LVSC), a safety and health collaboration between private employers, non-profit organizations, healthcare, academia and government.
Through monthly presentations, quarterly events and annual expos, the LVSC provides health and safety education. All events are free and all industries and individuals are welcome to attend events and participate on the committee.

Aspects & Realities of Workplace Fatalities
In 2011, nearly 5,000 United States workers died as a result of fatal injuries incurred during work-related incidents. While most organizations understand the direct costs associated with such a catastrophic event, many don't fully appreciate the indirect costs (morale, production) that can cripple a company's production floor and devastate its bottom line for years to come.
Join the LVSC on a journey of realization as we explore the true impact of a workplace fatality. From incident through phases of recovery and aftermath, our team of experts will provide meaningful discussion and statistics outlining the emotional and economic toll on an organization. The program will include perspectives from internal and external response, regulatory organizations and legal bodies. The event will conclude with a panel discussion featuring individuals who have experienced workplace fatalities firsthand.
Who Should Attend: Plant managers, health and safety managers, production managers, human resource managers, risk managers, chief financial officers
