Prevention Through Design Conference:
A New Way of Doing Business

A Report on the National Initiative

August 22-24, 2011
Omni Shoreham Hotel
Washington, DC

The conference marks the mid-point of the PtD National Initiative; therefore, our goal is to take stock of the Nation’s progress in improving worker safety and health through the inclusion of prevention methods in all designs that impact workers. Progress will be reported through presentations showcasing research results, engineering education enhancements, successful stakeholder practices, and policy development and advancement. An additional goal of the conference is to identify areas that require additional focus.
