"The theme for Safety Congress this year is prevention and care, which encompass everything we do at BWC. Working together, the two concepts ensure we are creating safer workplaces to reduce accidents and getting injured workers healthy and back on the job more quickly when accidents do happen, said BWC Administrator/CEO Steve Buehrer. "We look forward to again hosting a crowd of more than 5,000 for networking and prevention and care training."
