A FREE VIRTUAL EVENT FOR THE PUBLIC
The Pacific Coast Safety Fest (PCSF) is a live virtual event targeted to provide training and resources to anyone working or living in Region 9 (Arizona, California, Nevada, Hawaii, Guam, Pacific Territories and American Samoa).
PURPOSE: Pacific Coast 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 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.
Pacific Coast Safety Fest is a free virtual event designed to educate Region 9 workforce. The event is open to contractors, small business owners, professional technical educators, businesses required to follow OSHA standards and anyone interested in creating a safer workplace.
Course topics will include, but are not limited to: Health Hazard Awareness, Bloodborne Pathogens, Pandemic Illness Preparedness, and Fall Hazard Awareness.
Specific course dates and times can be found on the Virtual Event Registration page (link above).
This event is proudly co-sponsored by the Region 9 OSHA Education Centers at Arizona State University, California State University, Dominguez Hills, College; Chabot-Las Positas Community College; and University of California San Diego and U.S. Department of Labor - OSHA Region 9.
