It's not too late to plan your company's Safety Break on Wednesday, May 13. Companies planning to participate will be entered to win one of three $100 pizza luncheons when they sign up online by Friday, May 8. The prizes will be given to participating companies as part of a random drawing. The Oregon SHARP Alliance is sponsoring the contest.
You can find more information about Safety Break on the Safety Break for Oregon website.
Also, in recognition of Safety Break, SafeBuild Alliance has joined with Oregon OSHA to present a free workshop on the causes of several fatal construction accidents that happened in the Portland area. Oregon OSHA accident investigator Mike Riffe will use working models of construction equipment to show how the accidents happened and what could have been done to prevent them.
When: Wednesday, May 13, 2015 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.
Where: DCBS Durham facility; 16760 SW Upper Boones Ferry Road, Durham, Ore.
Register here to attend the workshop.
