(OCEAN CITY, Md.) - The Delmarva Safety Association kicked off its annual Spring Safety Conference Monday morning in Ocean City.
Hundreds of industry professionals gathered at the Clarion Hotel for the first day of the two-day event to learn about the newest developments in safe work environments.
Dozens of local and national businesses set up shop throughout the Crystal Ballroom showcasing the latest technology, gear, and work clothes on the market.
"We sell and distribute safety footwear to government and industry," said Joe Dvorak, a salesman with Saf-Gard Safety Shoes. "These are extremely slip-resistant on a tile floor, terracotta tile floor. It has a different application. This has more of an outdoor-wear application."
"We are safety consultants. We go around and help companies comply with Occupational Health and Safety Administration-compliance, workplace safety, training. We network but we also give presentations and listen to presentations to keep up to date on safety regulations," said Chuck Northam, owner of Safety Resources, Inc.
"We have clients in 27 states and we help the small construction company that doesn't know about regulatory compliance. As well as bigger companies that may have a third party need to do auditing, specialized training," Northam added.
The event featured keynote speakers, classes and more for the industry professionals at the event, some of whom included police officers, construction workers, and engineers.
The Delmarva Safety Association is a nonprofit that spreads awareness about safe work practices through education and advocacy projects.
