Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration (TOSHA) has teamed up with the Oak Ridge Business Safety Partnership (ORBSP), along with dozens of other organizations, to host the 4th annual Safety Fest TN.
This year’s event will be held in Oak Ridge from Monday, Sept. 14 – Friday, Sept. 18, and will feature experts leading more than 40 free classes, seminars, demonstrations, and a safety expo with 40 exhibitors from a wide variety of organizations.
“We truly want to make a difference in the workplace,” said Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner Burns Phillips. “Everyone involved in Safety Fest TN has the same goal in mind, and that is to get workers home safe to their families. There is an abundance of knowledge to be gained from this fest and it is all free.”
The free classes, seminars and demonstrations are designed to appeal to all safety and health professionals, managers, and workers. Attendees come from large and small businesses, non-profits, labor unions, and federal, state, and local government agencies.
Some of the classes offered include Fire Safety, Evacuation and Emergency Planning, Workplace Violence, and the OSHA General Industry 10-Hour Course.
“TOSHA is thankful for the opportunity to be a part of Safety Fest TN,” said Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administrator Steve Hawkins. “By offering this event for free, we hope to attract a variety of industry professionals making an impact on the workplace at all levels. This event has something to offer everyone.”
