Safety Fest TN is next week in Oak Ridge. Safety Fest TN is an annual community event that offers more than 90 free safety classes and demonstrations to residents and companies, a press release said.
Safety Fest TN is scheduled from September 10-14. This year’s training classes will be offered at Y-12’s New Hope Center, ORAU’s Pollard Technical Center, and other local venues.
Registration and a complete list of classes can be found at www.safetyfesttn.org.
Planners for the event work to develop classes each year that provide valuable insight and training to the region that may be costly or difficult to obtain elsewhere, the press release said.
A sample of this year’s classes include national motivational speaker Chip Eichelberger at the annual Safety Forum, World Class Safety, a Leadership Engagement Roundtable, Chain Saw Safety, CPR and First Aid Certification, Confined Space, Evacuation and Emergency Planning, Fall Prevention, HAZWOPER 8-hour, OSHA Construction 10-hour, Power Tool Safety, Trench Safety, and Welding Safety.
“This is the seventh year of Safety Fest TN’s offering so many outstanding safety classes for free to anyone who registers,” said Michelle Keever, UCOR’s Senior Safety and Health Program Specialist and Safety Fest Class Coordinator. She added, “Our community sponsors make it possible for us to not only offer free safety training, but to provide free lunches and breaks for a convenient training experience.”
Many other events are planned for Safety Fest TN, in addition to safety classes. The popular Safety Expo will return with more than 50 safety equipment and training representatives, along with many safety demonstrations, including a Black Hawk helicopter landing on September 11 and Pike Electric’s Live Line demonstration.
