Pivot to Virtual

As the state continues to see an increase in the number of COVID-19 Delta variant cases, we have made the decision to pivot the 70th Annual Governor’s Industrial Safety and Health Conference to a virtual event. While we regret not being able to meet in person again this year, our priority is the health, safety and wellbeing of the people living and working in our state.

In addition to the Keynote, we have a varied slate of sessions spanning several weeks so you can attend as your schedule allows. Most sessions will be recorded for later viewing at your convenience.
Check out the Schedule for full session details.

Pre-Conference Training

An optional pre-Conference training session "Occupational Deaths of Despair: Scope of the Problem and Strategies for Prevention", presented by the UW Northwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety, is available.

The Heart of Safety

Safety must come from the heart to be truly effective every second of every day.  Safety leadership is not about lighting a fire under people.  It is about lighting a fire within them!  When we accomplish this it creates a burning passion for safety within our teams.
