A series of online sessions will be offered through October


Eau Claire, WI – An annual conference at Chippewa Valley Technical College popular with western Wisconsin businesses will be done virtually this year. CVTC’s Safety Day will be offered as a series of online sessions throughout October and will address important topics and new development in workplace safety.

“CVTC provides safety training to companies throughout the area, but it’s great to have an event that brings people together to explore common issues and network about their successes and challenges,” said Rich Stangl, a safety trainer with CVTC’s Workforce Solutions and Continuing Education team. “.: “As we are mindful of safety from a public health perspective during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering the content of our Safety Day through several virtual breakout sessions.”

For the virtual event, CVTC is offering a series of sessions hosted on Microsoft Teams dealing with important safety topics. Sessions that registrants can participate in from their homes or offices will be held Oct. 7-29.  Topics include Reasonable Suspicion, Transitioning to Safer Chemicals, Worker Compensation, Fall Protection and Warehousing Safety.
