            The Southern Oregon Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers invites
            you to attend our 17th annual Southern Oregon Safety and Health Conference,
            at the Smullin Center in Medford. This year’s theme is “Charting the Course for
            World Class Safety and Health.” We believe that the slate of presentations offered
            this year will be like a compass to help you set the direction for safety and health,
            both at work and at home.
            This year’s conference provides a wide variety of interesting speakers from all
            over the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Their primary goal will be to excite and
            inform you on the latest trends and best practices in the areas of safety and health
            management. You can count on this conference to be the best networking op-
            portunity of the year for southern Oregon and northern California. Please join us
            in welcoming this gathering of some of the brightest and most sought after safety
            presenters in the business. We strive to make this conference affordable to all.
            Most of our presenters have greatly reduced or even waived their normal fees to
            make it possible for us to offer top instructors in each area, at a fee that is unheard
            of any where else. While you are attending the training sessions we will also give
            you ample opportunity to visit the vendor area where you can meet the suppliers
            of safety equipment and services who support our area. We have structured our
            registration to allow you to attend for as little as a half day or as much as the full 2
            days, and lunch is on us.
            We promise to inform, energize, and reward you for your attendance at this year’s
            conference. Our dedicated planning committee has worked all year to make
            this a rewarding and enjoyable experience for all attendees. Please take a few
            moments to look through the program schedule and read the presenter’s biogra-
            phies, I feel certain that you will find many of the topics of interest.
            On behalf of the Southern Oregon Chapter of the ASSE, Oregon OSHA, and all
            of our very generous corporate sponsors, please allow us to show you how to
            start “Charting the Course for World Class Safety and Health.”

Failing to plan is planning to fail — it’s an axiom that applies not only to occu-
pational safety and health, but also to life. The theme of this year’s conference,
“Charting the Course for World Class Safety and Health” recognizes how vital
planning is to ensuring a safer tomorrow for those we work with each day.
Healthcare and construction are two industries vital to southern Oregon’s future
— they are also two industries that require ‘out of the box’ thinking on the part of
safety and health professionals to ensure that workers are protected from injuries
that, left unchecked, can become the by-product of a region’s economic success.
Attending the 2007 Southern Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Confer-
ence remains a great use of your training resources, and this year’s conference
includes many new sessions to expand your understanding regarding safety and
health management.
The 2007 conference will provide you with new tools and new perspectives for
improving workplace health and safety in the 21st century. Our success must be
measured in the results for Oregon’s workers: Injury rates in the private sector
have been cut nearly in half since 1990 and our fatality rate has also shown a sus-
tained reduction over time. But the job is far from done, and our future success
depends upon our creativity and commitment today.
Thank you for your commitment to improving safety and health in southern
Oregon.
