Safety and Health Training (WisCon)

In addition to on-site assistance for individual employers, the WisCon program also provides presentations, seminars, and workshops on Occupational Health and Safety topics to the Wisconsin small business community. The following list provides Topics available, as well as a link to the event registration page. These presentations occur throughout Wisconsin, often at UW facilities including the UW Extension, local UW campuses, and Agriculture Research Stations.  Other partners include the local technical colleges throughout the state.

The following list of courses will be updated on a routine basis as courses, dates and locations get finalized.  Check back for updates.  Although there is no fee to attend the courses, registration is requested.  We will try to accommodate walk in attendees noting that there may only be enough course material for those pre-registered, there is limited seating at the locations, and all courses (especially those with no attendees registered) may be cancelled without notice.

In addition to the following courses, the WisCon program makes presentations at local and state Safety Conferences, Safety Days, Association Meetings, and other locations.  These program often have registration fees.  You can find dates and times that WisCon staff are making outside presentations HERE.
