On September 3, 2020, after nearly 32 years serving patients and businesses in the Coulee Region, long time LAOSHC board member Dale Wirth will retire from Gundersen Health System. Dale’s current roles at GHS include Clinical Occupational Therapist and Business Health Services Representative.
Dale joined LAOSHC in 2000, served as Vice President from January 2006 – December 2008, and President from January 2009 – December 2012. Dale remained on the Board from January 2013 to today. Dale says, “it has been incredibly rewarding being part of the LAOSHC over the years. I have made many lifelong friendships while trying to make the La Crosse community a safe place to work. Many thanks to all the people I have had the opportunity to work with over the past years. I have been truly Blessed to have had this role as part of my job.”
During his well-deserved retirement, Dale looks forward to preparing his house in La Crosse for sale and then a relocation to Weyauwega, WI where he plans to build a log home on his 7 woodland acres. Dale will spend his days hunting, fishing, golfing, and spending time with family in Appleton, WI.
On behalf of LAOSHC, we wish Dale the happiest of days ahead. Thank you for your service.

The LAOSHC board welcomes you to attend a board meeting to see us in action. Board meetings are held on the Second Monday of the month at 4 pm. All meetings will be held virtually until further notice.
If you have a new, complicated, or problematic safety program and would like a fresh pair of eyes to weigh in on it, invite a LAOSHC colleague over for a Peer Review. Each month during announcements members will be given a chance to briefly introduce the program under review and what they would like members to give an opinion on. Interested members may exchange business cards and arrange details on their own. Peer Reviews should last 2 hours or less.
In an effort to make sure we are presenting on topics of interest and better engage in programming, LAOSHC is offering a $50 Kwik Trip gift card and entry into a drawing, the winner of which will receive paid registration to the National Safety Council Congress.
To win members must:
Suggest a Presentation Topic
Board Approval of the Topic
Secure a speaker on an available meeting day
Speaker presents at the scheduled meeting
The LAOSHC reserves a portion of our membership dues to support and encourage health and safety programming in our community. As safety and health professionals, we are interested in promoting these programs both at our worksites and within the communities we live. All parties interesting in securing funding for their program are encouraged to complete a grant application form and submit the completed application to our council president. All funding requests are reviewed by our council board.
