Safety Fest TN will hold safety demonstrations that are open to the public next week, including an auto rollover simulation, a slip simulator, and a tree stand safety demonstration.
The demonstrations will be in the parking lot at the New Hope Center, at the front of Y-12 National Security Complex, at 602 Scarboro Road from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, September 15.
The free demonstrations are in conjunction with more than 60 safety classes that will be conducted during the week of September 14-18 at six locations in Oak Ridge and Knoxville. The classes are free of charge to those who register.
The safety demonstrations include the Tennessee Highway Patrol’s automobile rollover simulation and a Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency presentation on how to hunt from a tree stand safely. Also included are demonstrations in a live electric line situation and fall protection. A slip simulator teaches people how to walk safely on ice or other slippery surfaces, and the scaffold display allows people to see safely built scaffolding used in construction work on the job or at home.
