By ·

October 4th is the second annual Manufacturing Day, a day dedicated to highlighting the important role the manufacturing industry plays in the United States economy and in the lives of many Americans.

More than 600 manufacturers are scheduled to open their doors to host open houses, public tours, career workshops and other events. CNA will be celebrating by co-hosting a webinar with The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).

The complimentary webinar, Healthier, Safer and More Engaged: Your Guide to Creating Total Worker Health, will address the emerging challenges small and mid-sized manufacturers have to keep employees safe, healthy and productively engaged in today’s economy.

The webinar will take place on Tuesday, October 8th at 3:00 p.m. ET / 2:00 p.m. CT and is open to everyone.

“At CNA, we recognize that manufacturing plays a critical role in the U.S. economy. That is why we work together with key members of the industry to promote Manufacturing Day,” said Steve Earley, vice president, Manufacturing, CNA. “Through programs like the webinar we hope to attract attention and new talent to manufacturing, while helping support the ongoing prosperity of the whole industry.”

Manufacturing Day is co-produced by several leading manufacturing organizations, including Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International (FMA) and the National Association of Manufacturers.

CNA has been the preferred business insurance provider of the FMA for more than 20 years. In addition, over the past five years, the CNA Foundation has supported 27 summer manufacturing camps for Nuts, Bolts and Thingamajigs (NBT), FMA’s educational foundation. The mission of NBT is to engage, nurture and excite individuals of all ages in the pursuit of careers within the manufacturing industry.
