This event is held in February each year and it is FREE and open to the public. It is a three-day, free event that offers the opportunity for companies to receive free safety training for their employees from the area’s best safety instructors. Safety Fest offers more than 40 classes to choose from for workers in construction, general industry, mining, agriculture and logging. Classes offered include OSHA 10, CPR/First Aid, MSHA refresher, HAZWOPER refresher, Fall Protection, Forklift and Water Safety, among others. Participants can receive industry credentials from some classes, and every participant receives a certificate of completion for every class they take. New classes are added every year, based on the needs of the community and the kinds of accidents that have occurred.
Safety Fest has grown from 500 registrants a year to nearly 1,000. The event is put on by companies and individuals who volunteer their time to help in the education of our community.
Please feel free to call me if you have any questions or need any additional information.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at Safety Fest!!
