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 23-26, 2018 and will include a vendor show on January 23rd and 24th. We offer around 60 classes including some old favorites and some new ones. The class schedule will be posted prior to registration opening.
The always popular Trade Show and Vendor Bingo will be Tuesday and Wednesday with a prize drawing Wednesday at noon. This is a great opportunity to see new safety products and services and talk with the company representatives directly plus win some cool prizes.
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, SUEZ or Tates, 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.
Big thank you to our 2018 Title Sponsor and founding partner, St. Luke’s!
Plus a big thank you to our 2018 Gold Sponsor, PayneWest Insurance!
