This three-day conference features industry-leading educational programs covering critical topics in trucking safety, security, human resources, claims, and loss prevention. Explore the exhibit hall to discover innovative products and services designed to solve trucking’s challenges in safety, security and human resources. In addition to exceptional educational program and interactive exhibit floor, we provide networking opportunities – another highly appreciated benefit of #SSHR20 conference.

This Is Where Experts Influence the Quality and Direction of Industry Safety Regulations

In order to promote greater activity and cohesion, the Safety, Security & Human Resources National Conference & Exhibition has been moved to spring. This change will give our councils the opportunity to provide guidance on safety and security issues, share in decision making, and make recommendations to policy committees during Management Conference & Exhibition and Mid-Year Management Session.
