Stay alert. Speak up. Follow procedures.

Those six words were this year's theme for the sixth-annual Mohawk's Safety Conference. Each spring, EHS professionals from across the enterprise come together share best practices, participate in educational seminars, learn about resources, meet with vendors and celebrate outstanding safety performance.

"Six words may seem like a simple message, but these words embody a true safety culture," Corporate Safety Director Terry Craft said. "We know that it only takes a moment for a life to change forever, which is why the work we do is so important. When it comes to safety, we can't settle for anything less than excellence at all times."
