Registration opens Monday for Safety Fest TN, an annual community event that offers 90 free safety classes to residents and companies from September 11-15, a press release said.
This year’s training classes will be offered at the New Hope Center at Y-12 National Security Complex, ORAU’s Pollard Technical Center, and other local venues, the press release said. Registration and a complete list of classes can be found at www.safetyfesttn.org.
“Planners for the event work to develop offerings 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 Careers in Occupational Safety and Health (for high school and community college students), 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 sixth year of Safety Fest TN’s offering so many outstanding safety classes for free,” said Michelle Keever, UCOR’s senior safety and health program specialist and Safety Fest class coordinator. “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.” [Read more…]
