Welcome to Safety Fest of the Great Northwest 2014. January 21-24, 2014
We are very proud to announce that this year you will have a total of over 60 different classes during the 4 day conference. Safety Fest has grown significantly in both the number of classes offered and number of attendees since it began in Boise in 2005; and this year we have a lot of new classes, plus many of our popular previous classes:

  • The Opening Ceremony which will start Tuesday morning in the Auditorium in the URS Boise offices and will focus on personal aspects of Safety and Health including Abuse of Prescription Medications. This is a rapidly growing public health and workplace safety problem and our invited speakers will provide information on how to manage this growing concern.
  • The always popular Trade Show and Vendor Bingo will be Tuesday and Wednesday with a prize drawing Wednesday at lunch. You do not need to be present to win and prizes will be mailed. This is a great opportunity to see new safety products and services and talk with the company representatives directly plus win some cool prizes.
  • We’ll be again offering a 2½ -day Competent Person Class on Permit Required Confined Space starting on Wednesday January 23. You must attend all 3 days of the class.
  • The HEOSI School will again be teaching various Heavy Equipment training classes during the session. These popular and practical classes fill up fast so register early.
  • There will be multiple of First Aid/CPR classes including some in Spanish. Be sure to add this vital skill to your qualifications.
  • A number of Certification classes will be available so check the class schedule to see if there is one that you need to upgrade or keep your credentials current
 
Over the last 8 years, we are excited for the new classes and increased attendance and this year we hope to provide both repeats of most of the popular classes plus some new ones that can build your safety skills. But, the one thing that has not changed is the price – it is still free and it’s easy to register for classes. As always, we could not do this event without all of the support and contributions from our Founding Partners. Be sure to recognize these community advocates of safety for all of the great support they have provided over the years.To avoid confusion please register only once. If you need to change your registration please email Margaret.Phelps@urs.com. And please, DON’T be a “No Show”. Last year we lost a few attendees due to the snow and ice conditions which were unavoidable, but still if you know you cannot attend, let us know. Most classes have wait lists for seats and we want to provide every opportunity for people to participate. Thanks.
