Workplace safety and health conference coming to Medford
The Southern Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Conference will be
held October 23 and 24 at the Smullin Center, 2825 Barnett Road in Medford.
The conference will feature nationally recognized speakers Peter and Susan
Glaser presenting the keynote speech, "The Hidden Dimension of Human
Communications" and a day-long course to teach participants how to
"Break Through Conflict" at work.
Topics scheduled at the conference include "Preparing for Domestic
Terrorism", "Developing a Safety Culture", "Workplace
Violence - Strategies for Prevention and Survival", "Sprains,
Strains, and Things That Go Numb in the Night" and many more safety
and health workshops. Many of the classes have been designed to benefit
Southern Oregon's expanding health care services professions.
"There is a very strong track of the conference devoted to the health
care industry," says Laveryne Gray of Oregon OSHA's Conferences Section.
"There will be classes about how over-the-counter drugs can affect
your clients and how to handle bloodborne pathogens protection with the
advances in needle technology that have occurred in the past few years,"
Registration fees for the conference are $115 to attend both days of the
event, or $80 to attend one day of the conference. Wednesday's "Break
Through Conflict" training session has an additional $20 fee for
materials. The Southern Oregon Conference is a co-production of Oregon
