Oregon Conference to Focus on Worker Safety and Health

With more than 140 workshops and sessions, registration is now open for the Oregon Governors Occupational Safety and Health (GOSH) Conference. The largest event of its kind in the Northwest, the conference will be held March 7-10, at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland. 
On Wednesday, March 9, the event features a moderated panel discussion with four Northwest business leaders. Management from L & M Industrial Fabrication, River Point Farms, Dallas Retirement Village, and Christie Care will share their perspectives on the importance of safety and health within their organizations.(WCxKit)
This is a unique opportunity to hear from small business leaders on how to achieve management commitment and employee participation in safety and health,” said Michael Wood, Oregon OSHA administrator. “I believe their tools for success could apply to any organization.”  
Other general topics covered at conference include:
1.       Safety committee training
2.       What to expect from an OSHA inspection
3.       Hazard communication
4.       Advanced accident investigation
The conference also will feature session tracks on specialties such as health care, ergonomics, construction, emergency preparedness and response, alternative energy, safety for school districts, workplace culture and wellness.
