February 28 – March 2, 2017
Indiana Convention Center
The 2017 Indiana Safety and Health Conference & Expo is scheduled for February 28-March 2, 2017.
About 1,000 attendees participate in more than 40 educational breakout sessions. March 1 will feature an exhibitor hall where participants have an opportunity to see the latest in personal protective equipment, safety and health services as well as hands on demonstrations from over 100 exhibitors.
The conference includes a free half-day workshop on the first day for those interested in learning about the Indiana Department of Labor’s INSAFE Consultation Services and Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (INSHARP). Businesses and worksites that show excellence in occupational safety and health partner with and are recognized for their achievements by the Department as participants in these programs.
Indiana On-site Safety Health Consultants will present on topics including: OSHA’s requirements for lockout/tagout, common violations cited under OSHA’s welding standards, OSHA’s new construction silica standard and OSHA’s requirements for spray finishing operations.
On March 2, the recipients of the 2017 Governor’s Workplace Safety award will also be recognized. The “Everyday Safety Hero” award was also created this year to recognize individuals who go above and beyond the call in safety and health. More information about the awards is available at http://www.in.gov/dol/2934.htm. Applications for the awards may be downloaded from this site.
