Press release from the issuing company

3/29/07 -- Fairfax, Virginia — Peer-to-peer roundtable discussions led the highlights at this year's National Environmental Health & Safety Conference — co-sponsored by SGIA — in Jacksonville, Florida. “The response to the conference's expanded roundtable format was overwhelmingly positive,” said Marci Kinter, SGIA's Vice President of Government & Business Information. The NEHS conference expanded on its strong background — presenting the latest safety, health and environmental issues affecting the graphic communications industries — with 12 informal roundtable discussions. The event also focused several sessions on HR issues such as privacy issues in the workplace and selling safety to management personnel. “At each roundtable, attendees from various printing industries were openly sharing information and giving each other ideas and solutions,” Kinter said, adding “Many were jotting down to-dos for when they returned to their facilities.” One popular subject at the conference: Corporate sustainability and its growing presence in industries such as specialty imaging. NEHS Keynote Speaker Calvin Frost, Channeled Resources, noted sustainability is causing a shift in the printing industry as it takes on a more prominent role in the global economy.
