Safety and Health Conference Coming To Redmond in September



Oregon OSHA is proud to co-host an occupational safety and health conference designed to meet the needs of Central Oregon employers in Redmond this September.


The Central Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Conference will be held at the Eagle Crest Resort in Redmond from September 17-20, 2002. The 2002 theme for the annual event is "Get Hooked on Safety and Health."


Some of the conference topics scheduled for this year include "Enhancing Your Safety and Health Program", "Emergency Preparedness and Action Plans" and classes which address employee wellness in a changing economy. The conference lineup includes many training sessions which meet OR-OSHA mandatory training requirements for certain industries which require continuing education. The conference registration fee for the four-day event is $185, attend the Wednesday through Friday sessions for $135, or attend one day of the conference for $100. Attendees may also participate in the Tuesday pre-conference meetings for $50. A limited number of exhibitor spaces are also available for $300.


The Central Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Conference is an annual partnership of Oregon OSHA and the Central Oregon Safety and Health Association.


Oregon OSHA offers a variety of conferences, on-site training, educational resources and consultation services to help Oregon employers create safer workplaces and reduce the amount of productivity lost due to injuries which occur at work. Additional information and resources are available on Oregon OSHA's website, www.orosha.org
