The iP Utility Safety Conference & Expo will be take place on April 24-26 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Loveland Conference & Spa in Loveland, Colorado. Each year, this event brings together leading safety and operations minds from across the country for three days of education and networking.
To help you make the most of your time at the expo, we've shared a few highlights and sessions that you won't want to miss.
Stay on top of emerging utility safety trends
Autonomous Vehicle Safety
The emergence of self-driving systems is a trend that utility safety professionals should continue to monitor, as this technology is changing very rapidly and has the potential to significantly impact fleet safety and operations.
In the presentation, "Autonomous Vehicles Are Coming Sooner Than You Think: What You Need to Know to Be Ready for the Safety Challenges They Will Bring," Sean Lyden, Editor of Utility Fleet Professional Magazine, will review the reasons why a self-driving world seems inevitable, the possible roadblocks of the advancement of self-driving systems, and how organizations can prepare for this technological change. The presentation will kick off at 11:00 am on Tuesday, April 24.
