The 14th Annual Construction Safety Day was held virtually again due to the ongoing pandemic.
This year Governor Jay Inslee provided a special welcome message to open the event along with L&I Director Joel Sacks, and the newly appointed Assistant Director of DOSH, Craig Blackwood. Despite the challenges faced over the past two years the Construction Industry persevered and continued working with new ways to keep safe. The online event hosted nearly 150 people looking back and moving forward with sessions such as The Mental Load, Cultural Safety & Equity, and Addressing the Stress.
A highlight of the event each year is the scholarship awarded to someone in pursuit of a career in workplace safety & health. This year’s winner was David Enow, a student at Central Washington University working on his Bachelor’s in Risk, Insurance, and Safety Management.
Thank you to the CSD Sponsors; Pacific Pile & Marine, JTM Construction, Atkinson Construction and Approach Management Services that allow for the scholarship year after year and helps to keep the event affordable for attendees.
We are all looking forward to when it is safe to gather again in person. We hope you will join us this fall for the 71st Annual Governor’s Industrial Safety & Health Conference at the Greater Tacoma Convention Center, September 28-29, 2022. Hold the date for now for the 15th Annual Construction Safety Day when we plan to return in person to the Showplex Center at the Washington State Fairgrounds on March 29, 2023.
