ANNUAL WORKPLACE SAFETY AND HEALTH CONGRESS IN NASHVILLE
Delegates can choose from more than 60 sessions

NASHVILLE - The 27th Annual Tennessee Safety and Health Congress, co-sponsored by the Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health (TOSHA) Division of the state Department of Labor & Workforce Development and the Tennessee Chapters of the American Society of Safety Engineers, is being held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center today through July 28.

The yearly conference features safety experts leading more than 60 workshops on topics such as safety and health management, industrial hygiene issues, TOSHA updates, healthcare and construction issues.

"Employers and employees interested in making workplace safety a top concern will find the latest information available," said Tennessee Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner James Neeley. "Not only will there be extensive training opportunities, but also the chance to see the latest innovations in products and services related to workplace safety and health."

The conference is designed for safety managers, supervisors, plant managers, safety committee members, industrial hygienists, human resource managers, risk managers, health-care providers and employees.

The special Federal OSHA Training Institute's approved "10-Hour General Industry Safety & Health Course" is among the workshops offered at this year's Congress. Participants in this course, which is recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor, are entitled to all other Congress functions.

More than 1,200 people will be attending the Congress. Registrations will be taken on-site. To find out more information about this year's Congress, go to www.tnsafetycongress.org or call (615)741-7143.
