The event offered its highly popular “Safety in the Round” sessions, giving attendees the chance to draw from the knowledge of the group to address common safety management and human-resource problems. Discussion topics included workers’ compensation issues, employee/employer communication, improving driver-hiring procedures, and others.

In addition to specialized educational sessions developed by TCA’s Safety & Security Division Officers, attendees could participate in a first-timers orientation, network at receptions, peruse a robust exhibition hall which featured the latest products and services, and more.
