2020 Keynote Speaker

Rick Engler, Board Member, U.S. Chemical Safety Board

Rick Engler was nominated by President Obama to the U.S. Chemical Safety Board in January 2014 and confirmed by the U.S. Senate in December 2014. Before his appointment, Mr. Engler spent more than four decades helping to prevent hazards, including to ensure that workers and the public had a “right to know” about chemical dangers. He also helped lead successful efforts to achieve landmark state and national policies on hazard communication, adoption of inherently safer processes, worker participation and whistleblower protection.
