About Safety Fest

Purpose

Safety Fest is a safety and health training event that offers training classes related to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations. The purpose of this training is to raise awareness concerning pertinent safety and health hazards and best work practices in the area where the training is being offered. The expected outcome of all OSHA training is related to the mission of OSHA that all workers return home safe each day.

History

Safety Fest originated in Denver CO, in 2005 when the OSHA Regional office collaborated with several professional construction associations, an insurance company and the Colorado State University OSHA consultation project, to address fall protection issues in the construction industry. The idea was to hold a free or low cost event where all employees and employers could receive pertinent information concerning how to protect themselves and their employees from falls. The event was named Safety Fest of the West. This event has since evolved and continues in the Denver area today. Safety Fest has spread to different parts of the country and has various names such as The Pacific Coast Safety Fest and Safety Fest of the Great Northwest.
