Following the professional development workshop will be a lunch with a technical class called Discover the Importance of Sleep to Maximize Employee Performance and Safety. Health, human resilience, clear and focused minds all depend on adequate sleep. Evidence shows that many workplace incidents occur because worker performance is hindered by fatigue. This class will provide insight on how to help our workforces improve sleep-related performance. Anyone wishing to attend this lunch event will need to register specifically for the lunch. The in-person day will be capped off with an awards ceremony and a networking mixer. Be sure to attend these events as well!
Day two and three of the conference will be held virtually. With the necessity of early planning which started in January, we were unable to predict with certainty what COVID-19 restrictions may be in place. As a result, we planned the virtual part of the conference to ensure we would be able to offer classes that are necessary according to Oregon OSHA guidance for safety committees and to cover other elemental necessities of safety that are important to our communities. Besides the safety committee classes such as Safety Committee 101, Hazard ID, and Root Cause Analysis, other important elements to be covered include Construction Safety, Safety Culture, Serious Injury Prevention, Safety Technology and Apps, Ergonomics, and Silica Awareness.
We look forward to this year’s conference; learning opportunities, recognition events, networking, and comradery in safety are just around the corner. See you there!
