Illinois Occupational Safety and Health Day Aims to Protect Employees

Making and keeping the workplace safe and healthful will be the focus of the 18th Annual Downstate Illinois Occupational Safety and Health (DIOSH) Day slated for March 4 at the Peoria Civic Center in Peoria, Ill. Workplace safety and health issues will be discussed and information made available to employers, employees and the general public.

"Numerous exhibitors will join governmental and nonprofit organizations in demonstrating useful and innovative products and services designed to meet workplace safety and health goals," said Nick Walters, director of OSHA's area office in Peoria. "The conference will offer safety professionals in downstate Illinois the chance to network with hundreds of their peers and to learn about resources available to businesses and employers."

The conference is being jointly sponsored by the Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) Peoria Area Office; the American Society of Safety Engineers Central Illinois Chapter; the American Industrial Hygiene Association, Prairie Section; the Greater Peoria Contractors and Suppliers Association Inc.; the Illinois Department of Labor; the Employers' Association; and the Tri-County Construction Labor-Management Council.

Breakout sessions will address: overlooked construction hazards; asbestos, lead, and silica; combustible dust; heavy equipment and cranes; machine safeguarding; and several other topics. A mini health fair will feature blood pressure, heart rate, and glucose level testing, as well as other valuable health screening services.

The daylong event will open for registration at 7 a.m. CST and continue with workshops and breakout sessions until 4 p.m. Exhibit area hours will be from 7 a.m. until 3:10 p.m. CST. Registration and additional information may be obtained by calling 877-DIOSH-DAY (346-7432) or visiting the Web site at www.DIOSHDay.com.
