Safety Fest is an annual training event that offers free safety and health training to workers, supervisors, and managers of all levels. The Boise Safety Fest will be held January 22-24, 2019 and will include a vendor show on January 22 & 23. We offer roughly 60 classes including some old favorites and some new ones.
New Healthcare Track – January 23rd
We are offering a healthcare track on Wednesday, January 23rd geared towards both home and private healthcare providers and sponsored in part by St. Luke’s Health System. This is a 4-part track and you can choose to register for all 4 sessions or choose just the ones you find relevant.
Opening Session – January 22, 9 a.m. to noon
This year’s theme: The Art of Selling Safety featuring a panel of experts discussing how they sell safety to employees, clients, subcontractors, management, government, and the public. Keynote speaker, Tim Page-Bottorff, CSP, CET, and recent recipient of both the ASSP and NSC highest awards, will share techniques on how to inject Humor in Safety – from Blah Blah Blah to Ha Ha Aha! This is your chance to learn the latest proven techniques to sell safety in your business!
Lunch with OSHA – January 22, noon to 1 p.m.
Grab a lunch and join us for an informal gathering to get to know the Director and some of the Boise team. Get an update on OSHA’s focus and hot topics. Bring your questions. No need to register or RSVP.
As always, we could not provide this event without the support and contributions from our founding partners, sponsors, vendors and volunteer instructors. Be sure to recognize these community advocates of safety for all the great support they provide year after year.
We are excited to announce our new 2019 Location Sponsor, Boise State University!
