Oregon OSHA Announces Cannabis Safety Forum

The Sept. 18-19 forum, which is titled "Safety and Health in the Cannabis Industry: From Seed to Shatter," is part of the Central Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Conference.

Oregon OSHA and partners are hosting a Sept. 18-19 forum for cannabis growers and extractors about safety and health in their industry. The event is part of a two-day event in Bend, Ore.

Oregon OSHA, a division of the state Department of Consumer and Business Services, is one of several partners presenting the forum, which is titled "Safety and Health in the Cannabis Industry: From Seed to Shatter." It's part of the Central Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Conference, which will tackle a range of other workplace health and safety issues.

It will address multiple health and safety topics and will include a question-and-answer session. It will feature speakers from Oregon OSHA; the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC); Oregon Department of Agriculture; the Portland and Bend fire departments; and Oregon-based grow and extraction operations.

Topics will include:

  • OLCC requirements
  • Cannabis grow operations
  • Hydrocarbon extraction
  • Carbon dioxide extraction
  • CO2 and alcohol extraction
  • Fire marshal regulations
  • Pesticide regulations
