The effort to protect workers nationwide continues in the Pacific Northwest, as Washington State will play host to a two-day safety event in late September.
One of the largest safety and health conferences in the nation is planned for Spokane next month, and registration is now open for the event.
The 63rd annual Governor’s Industrial Safety and Health Conference takes place on Sept. 24-25 at the Spokane Convention Center.

The Governor’s Industrial Safety and Health Advisory Board and the Department of Labor & Industries sponsor the conference with support from industry partners.
Certified safety professional and motivational speaker Bruce Wilkinson will open the two-day meeting with a keynote presentation. He uses humor and enthusiasm to inspire audiences.
