2016 Safety Fest was a great success.
Almost 1,100 people registered, and we filled over 2,150 seats in 58 classes this year. In addition, 38 completed the entire 11-class, 24-hour Safety and Health Track! The Opening Ceremony, Lunch with OSHA, and Vendor Trade Shows were a great success.
Welcome to Safety Fest of the Great Northwest 2017–Our 12th year!

If you do not get into all the classes you want, please come to the registration desk (or if the class is off site, go to the class location) at class time and folks will be added on a first-come, first-served basis as space permits. Please do not be late for your class or your spot will be filled, and please DON’T be a “No Show.” If your class is at AGC, ITD or SUEZ, please go to those locations to see if you can attend.
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.
Vendors will be able to display on Tuesday, January 24th from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm and on Wednesday, January 25th from 7:30 am 1:00 pm, at a cost of only $300 per booth area. Booth areas are 8 x 8 and include display tables and chairs which will be set up in the vendor area in advance. You will need to bring your own draping, electrical cords and display supplies. There are 40 booth areas available and they will go fast, so submit your registration early. Fill out a Vendor Registration Form and email your form to Dawn Christensen at email@example.com.
Big thank you to our 2017 Gold Level Sponsors!
