The Oregon Governor’s Occupational Safety and Health (GOSH) Conference returns in 2015 to the Oregon Convention Center in Portland. The event, scheduled for March 9-12, is the largest conference of its kind in the Northwest and will feature speakers from across the country.

Sponsors such as SAIF Corporation, Liberty Mutual, the Portland Business Journal, and Hoffman Construction, have already signed on to support the event. Tony Howard, safety director at Hoffman Construction, which has been a sponsor for many years, finds the event valuable.

“We make it a point to send a number of our superintendents and engineers because of the high quality training available,” Howard said. “This is an excellent venue for our safety staff to build relationships with other professionals in the industry and stay abreast of the latest regulatory changes. Everyone benefits from seeing the latest safety technology offered throughout the exhibit hall.”

GOSH award nominations are also being accepted to honor organizations and individuals who make extraordinary contributions to workplace safety and health. Applications are due Oct. 1, 2014, and are available at
