Safety Fest TN

September 11, 2017 - September 15, 2017

Safety Fest TNRegistration for Safety Fest TN opens on July 24. Please go to to register.

Safer workplaces result in safer communities. Why? Because workers take safety practices learned on the job back home and into their communities. ETEBA companies participate in an annual event to ensure safer communities by offering free safety training to anyone who registers.

For the 6th consecutive year, the Oak Ridge Business Safety Partnership (ORBSP), partnering with ETEBA companies and other organizations, will host Safety Fest TN, a week of safety classes, safety seminars, a safety expo, and a community safety forum – all free of charge. The event is scheduled for September 11-15 in Oak Ridge with classes in venues in Oak Ridge and Knoxville.

“This year’s Safety Fest TN, for the first time, combines DOE’s biannual Emergency Management (EM) Forum, into our agenda. In addition to our safety classes, demonstrations, seminars, and Safety Expo, we’ll have an EM Expo. Our traditional
community brunch, hosted by CNS, is back on the schedule, too,” said Jenny Freeman, chair of the ORBSP planning committee which is responsible for organizing the event.

“We’ve got something for everyone,” she said. One of the main events is a community safety forum with keynote speakers from the TN Department of Labor and TN OSHA, in addition to speakers from TN Department of Homeland Security and TEMA.

Over 80 free safety classes will be offered during Safety Fest TN, ranging from the OSHA series to chainsaw safety and hearing conservation. Want to learn CPR or recertify CPR training? Safety Fest TN will offer several CPR classes, and they fill up rapidly. Safety Fest TN also hosts an annual favorite called World Class Safety which features representatives
from commercial manufacturers who share information about their safety programs. “This seminar is ideal for learning new ideas from safety practices implemented at the facilities of some of the region’s most successful companies,” said JJ Rochelle, seminar coordinator.

Safety Fest TN kicks off at 9:00 a.m. on September 11 with the community safety forum, followed by the community brunch.

“We appreciate our sponsors for supporting Safety Fest TN once again,” said Jenny Freeman, “because their donations make it possible for Safety Fest TN to remain free of charge to anyone who registers.” A complete schedule can be found at
