The National Conference on Worker Safety and Health (#COSHCON17) is the only national gathering of its kind. We’ll bring together a diverse, inclusive and bilingual group of participants united around common goals: Empowering workers, making our workplaces safer and reducing the toll of on-the-job injuries, illnesses and fatalities.

We've just posted the conference agenda; check it for a full schedule of workshops, speakers and panelists.

#COSHCON17 will take place December 5 through 7, 2017 at the Maritime Conference Center just outside of Baltimore and minutes from BWI airport.
