2013 NYSUT HEALTH & SAFETY CONFERENCE

March 1-2, 2013. Saratoga Hilton, Saratoga Springs, NY.

UPDATE: We have extended the deadline for conference registration to Thursday, Feb. 7.

CONFERENCE INFORMATION

Conference Theme: "Prevention, Preparedness, Response and Recovery"

On behalf of the NYSUT Task Force on Health and Safety, we invite you to attend the 2013 NYSUT Health & Safety Conference to be held March 1-2, 2013 at the Saratoga Hilton in Saratoga Springs.

The tragic events of Superstorm Sandy and the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting remind us how important workplace health and safety is for our members and the public we serve. In light of this, the 2013 Health and Safety Conference planners have acted to ensure that many of the great workshops offered have content related to these events. The program includes a wide range of workshops relevant to local leaders and health and safety activists.

CONFERENCE FEE
