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.
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.
Chippewa Valley Technical College is hosting "Safety Day" in Eau Claire on October 18th. All day training on "the most relevant safety topics in today's industry." Cost is $99 to attend.
If money is a concern, apply for a LAOSHC grant!
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.

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.
