For clarification parking is good for the whole day. For example if you leave for lunch and return to the garage the cameras recognize your license plate when you come back from lunch and then sees that it already has been checked in for the day.
Opening Session (Tuesday, 8 to 11:30 a.m.): We have a great lineup this year including Safety’s Competitive Advantage, stretching to prevent injury, and an update on key OSHA issues in Idaho. Our keynote speaker, Tim Creasey, a globally recognized leader in change management, will share his research, humor, and model in this interactive session to help you unlock the challenges of change so you can better navigate our changing world. This is a great opportunity to learn the latest techniques to further your knowledge and your career!
Lunch with OSHA (Tuesday, noon to 1 p.m.): Grab a bite to eat in the SUB or pack your lunch and drop in anytime between 12-1 for an informal opportunity to meet some of the OSHA staff, get a quick update, and ask any burning OSHA questions.
