The Westin San Diego Gaslamp Quarter

Over the last 20 years, MCAA's Safety Conference has brought together thousands of safety directors, but this year, we are excited to expand and welcome ALL SAFETY PROFESSIONALS to learn and celebrate what we have accomplished so far.

As we look towards the next 20 years, MCAA's 2023 Safety Conference includes 50+ hours of education and training from subject matter experts on safety, health, risk management, and legal issues. Join us for three days of presentations, discussions, and demonstrations with 300+ occupational safety and health professionals, principals, owners, local affiliated executives, UA instructors, NECA/TAUC/SMACNA partners, and anyone who has safety and health responsibilities.

New this year, we have identified beginner, intermediate, and advanced tracks for our breakout sessions. These are designed to give new and experienced safety professionals a way to identify how best to choose breakout sessions.

  • Beginner: The information in these sessions is designed to give new safety professionals the opportunity to learn about topics important to our industry.
  • Intermediate: The information in these sessions is designed to give all safety professionals both, a theoretical and applied look at job site safety.
  • Advanced: The information in these sessions is designed to give experienced safety professionals the opportunity to learn about leadership and management skills.
