Summit welcome with Roger Bialous, WA Brewers Guild Secretary / Georgetown Brewing Company

Keynote Speaker: Brewers Association Safety Ambassador Matt Stinchfield: Matt is the BA Safety Ambassador, member of the BA Safety Subcommittee, and a frequent speaker at conferences, state guilds, and webinars. He is lead instructor for the OSHA-funded Hazard Reduction Practices for Cleaning Draught Beer Lines course and the annual Brewery Safety Bootcamp at the Craft Brewers Conference. Currently, Matt is writing the book on brewery safety for Brewers Publications, shooting for release next year. In his spare time, he forages mushrooms and wrangles trout.

Talk Title: Improving Brewery Safety – You Already Have What You Need
Description: Brewers Association Safety Ambassador Matt Stinchfield enlightens and educates on the principal drivers of safety culture. A strong safety culture isn’t about mandates and enforcement. It isn’t about designating a select individual to lead your safety program. In fact, a healthy safety culture doesn’t have much to do with safety. Sound paradoxical? Find out how to transform building blocks you already have into a safe, productive, and inclusive work environment. This talk is for all brewery employees, managers and owners.
