"We are thankful for the opportunity to have TOSHA be involved with Safety Fest TN and believe it’s a great opportunity to connect with people in various industries throughout the state."

"We are thrilled to have TOSHA's support and participation," said Jenny Freeman, one of partnership's leaders. "TOSHA has been instrumental across the board in this year's event. We are pleased to have both TOSHA Administrator Steve Hawkins and TOSHA Assistant Administrator James Flanagan speaking at this year's Safety Fest TN."

The expo will take place Sept. 8-9. Attendees come from large and small businesses, non-profits, labor unions, and federal, state, and local government agencies.
