This year marks the 20th anniversary for the Chicagoland Safety & Health Conference, co-sponsored by the OSHA and slated for September 15-18 at Northern Illinois University, 1120 E. Diehl Road in Naperville.

In conjunction with the safety day, OSHA will co-sponsor the 2nd Annual SHARP/VPP conference on September 17 and 18. This conference within a conference is specifically designed for companies interested in pursuing safety excellence through OSHA's Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) or Illinois Consultation's Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP), as well as for companies that have achieved these certification milestones.

Safety managers, supervisors, plant managers, safety committee members, industrial hygienists, human resource managers, risk managers, and employees will be offered the unique opportunity to exchange information and ideas with safety and health professionals in their respective fields.

Events held on Monday, September 15, also will include a full-day seminar on successful training techniques. This seminar is designed to help attendees develop powerful techniques for presentation delivery.

Half-day seminars will be available on indoor environmental air quality, women in safety, and preparing for the certified industrial hygienist (CIH) examination. The "Women in Safety" seminar will be presented by professional women who have served in the safety and health field.

The full conference will begin Wednesday, September 17, with more than 40 sessions to choose from and presented by safety and health professionals.
