Co-hosted by the Kentucky Labor Cabinet and the Kentucky Health and Safety Network, Inc., the 33rd Annual Governor’s Safety and Health Conference will be held at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center from May 8 – 12, 2017. This year will mark the first time that the conference has been held in northern Kentucky.
The Conference brings together occupational safety and health professionals from the fields of business, labor, education and government. It is the largest gathering of occupational safety and health professionals in the Commonwealth. Its purpose is to raise awareness and promote safety and health in the workplace. These goals are accomplished by: (1) hosting workshops on numerous, timely workplace safety subjects, including courses necessary for occupational safety and health certification; (2) providing a forum for occupational safety and health professionals to gather and exchange ideas; and (3) provide vendors with a venue to showcase the latest in occupational safety and health products and equipment. Attendees can experience hands-on, interactive training opportunities, attend multiple certification courses, visit a state-of-the-art exhibition hall, take part in facility tours, and enjoy multiple networking opportunities.
The Conference also recognizes outstanding performance in the area of safety and health through the Governor’s Safety and Health Award. At last year’s conference, 48 companies were recognized for earning this Award. In order to become eligible for the Award, businesses must keep employees injury-and-illness-free for at least 250,000 consecutive hours depending on the number of employees.
