10th Annual EHS Summit Kicks Off Oct. 14 in Kearney

October 7, 2014

Safety professionals from across the state will gather in Kearney, Nebraska, for the 10th annual Environmental, Health and Safety Summit Tuesday, Oct. 14.

The daylong summit, which is presented by the Nebraska Ethanol Board, includes speakers from agencies across the country including the Environmental Protection Agency, Air Resource Specialists, Nebraska Safety Council, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration and Urban Air Initiative.

“This is a great opportunity to network and learn about the latest government regulations,” said Todd Sneller, Nebraska Ethanol Board administrator. “We are proud that the summit has grown to include diverse companies beyond the ethanol industry during the past 10 years.”

Originally established to provide compliance, safety, public health and emerging technology information for the rapidly developing ethanol industry, the program has attracted the attention of other professional sectors as government regulations continue to increase, Sneller said.

The Nebraska Ethanol Board works with a variety of private partners and ethanol plant personnel, who focus on compliance, worker safety and public health issues, to put on the summit. College students also are invited to attend and may qualify for a scholarship to waive the admission fee.

The event is presented in cooperation with the Association of Nebraska Ethanol Producers (ANEEP) and open to professionals who work in environmental compliance, worker safety, and processing and manufacturing. For registration details, contact the Nebraska Ethanol Board at 402-471-2941 or visit www.ne-ethanol.org.
