Build-a-Bike event combines networking, giving backPeer-to-peer networking is an integral part of the learning experience at AEM’s Product Safety & Compliance Seminar (PS&CS). This year, a unique networking event at the end of the seminar's first day will encourage attendee camaraderie while giving back to a local children's charity.

The event is Build-a-Bike, in which 22 teams of seminar attendees will compete to assemble full-size bicycles. The professionally hosted activity will include a number of fun challenges that teams must complete to earn the tools needed to put the bike together.

The winner is the team with the most points after their assembled bike is evaluated by the event host. And after the event, the bikes will be distributed to youngsters in southern Ohio and northern Kentucky through a local foundation.

The Product Safety & Compliance Seminar is set for April 24-26 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Keynote to Highlight 3M's Role in Safety

When you think of 3M, you probably think of Scotch tape and Post-It notes, not safety products. But according to 3M’s Chris DeColli, nothing could be further from the truth.

DeColli, business manager for 3M’s Traffic Safety and Security Division, will be the keynote speaker at AEM’s Product Safety & Compliance Seminar.

DeColli points out that 3M sells an extensive line of personal protective equipment (PPE) that lends itself well to both the construction and agriculture industries. Products include eye protection, respiratory protection, hearing & head protection and fall protection, to name a few.

In addition, the company offers a full line of pavement marking solutions and provides reflective sheeting for roadway signage.

DeColli will discuss the important role safety plays at 3M when he speaks to PS&CS attendees on April 25.
