2015 Governor's Industrial Safety and Health Conference


The 65th Annual Governor's Industrial Safety and Health Conference will be held September 28 & 29, 2016 at the Spokane Convention Center.  We expect to be opening registration about June 1, 2016.

The 64th Annual Governor's Industrial Safety and Health Conference was a tremendous success! 
We were excited to be offering over 70 different workshops over the course of two days! This Conference brought together workers, employers, safety and health professionals, medical providers and experts of all industries to deliver a program of cutting-edge education, best practices, peer networking and demonstrations in the Exhibit Hall as well as the surrounding areas outside the Convention Center.

Check out some of the highlights from the 64th Annual Governor's Industrial Safety and Health Conference below:

2015 Keynote Address
David Sarkus, MS, CSP 
"Leading from the Heart!; Moving Your People from I Gotta to I Wanna"  It's difficult for leaders to trust and understand the kinds of leadership, coaching and communications principles that must be used to help individuals and teams work safer on a regular basis.  In fact, some people don't know quite where to begin. David reveals a set of global principles that anyone can use to help improve ongoing safety attitudes, actions and awareness.  The principles that David shares have helped organizations reduce injury rates by 35% to more than 80% in just one year.  These same principles will help move your people from compliance to commitment, from gotta to wanna, and from I can to we can.
