I still believe that this is the premier safety conference of its kind in our region, regularly drawing attendees from all over the northwest. The Professional Development Workshop on Tuesday, October 17th, will be taught by Bob Edwards author, trainer and consultant on “Operational Learning and Practical Application of Human Organizational Performance Principles.” Wednesday morning Bob will kick off the day with a keynote message about, “How to think like an Organizational Performance Coach.” Our Thursday morning keynote will be presented by author, trainer and consultant, Libby Gill on “Leading Through Change, Challenge, and Chaos.” Throughout the conference we have 27 breakout sessions for you to choose from. No matter what industry you are in, we have something for you at this conference: manufacturing, healthcare, construction, agricultural, etc. No matter your role in your organization, we have something for you: management, frontline employee, safety committee, HR, supervisor, etc.
Also, don’t forget the pre-conference CPR and Flagging certification workshops on Tuesday or the award ceremony on Thursday. Between the education and networking opportunities and the great food catered by Ashland Hills Hotel, this may be the best opportunity in the region for anyone with safety responsibilities at your organization. Please join us and celebrate safety in Southern Oregon!
