Specialty imagers from around the country recently met for the annual 2010 National Environmental Health and Safety (NEHS) Conference (Indianapolis, March 15–17) to discuss sustainability and other issues affecting the graphic communications industry. The conference is aimed at providing printers of all platforms the opportunity to network with their peers, take home new ideas to implement, and receive up to the minute information on safety, environmental and human resource issues.
The Sustainable Green Printing (SGP) Partnership certification program was a key topic of discussion. The SGP Printer Panel discussed activities involved in becoming certified as well as how they have benefited from achieving SGP status. Attendees also participated in pre-conference workshops, learned the latest health and safety practices, and developed action plans to employ sustainability programs and projects in their facilities.
