2019 EH&S Topics and Agenda
Share |

When a company joins the Association, they confirm their commitment to NORA’s Guiding Principles.

The first principle is:“We make health, safety, and environmental considerations a top priority in our planning for all existing and new facilities, processes, products, and services.”

The association will host its 6th annual NORA Environmental, Health & Safety (EH&S) Forum on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana prior to the start of the Winter Meeting. This forum is tailored for those whose roles within their companies significantly relate to EH&S issues. 

You may register for the EH&S Forum as a stand-alone event for just $159, or combine it with the NORA Winter Meeting Registration for $369. Click here to register.

Below is a preview of the topics that will be addressed at the event.
