A two-day event in Bend will offer employers and workers a full menu of opportunities to sharpen their skills at creating and maintaining safe and healthy workplaces.  Those opportunities include topics on everything from reinvigorating safety committees and safely handling chemicals to understanding updated rules for firefighters and learning how to be a safer driver.

Oregon’s Occupational Safety and Health Division (Oregon OSHA), a division of the Department of Consumer and Business Services, is one of several partners presenting the Sept. 20-21 Central Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Conference at the Riverhouse on the Deschutes.

On Tuesday, Sept. 20, keynote speaker Dale Lesinski, vice president of sales and training for DiVal Safety Equipment, an international leader in safety supplies and training, will present ‘Safe 4 the Right Reasons.’  Incorporating audience participation, humor, and real-world situations, Lesinski will discuss how understanding human behavior provides the key to motivating employees to value safe behavior and avoid accidents.  Lesinski said he will seek to inspire attendees to reflect on their personal values and to make safety a core value.

‘I also hope to enable everyone to watch out for one another,’ he said, ‘and I will demonstrate a very simple technique that they can incorporate immediately.’  Click here to register.
