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-Madison facilities including the UW Extension, and Agriculture Research Stations, as well as other UW System Campuses.  Other partners include the local technical colleges throughout the state.

You can sign up for training program update emails by registering here.  You will get emails about programs scheduled near your zipcode.

The following is a list of presentations and seminars that the WisCon program is participating in. For presentations sponsored by outside organizations, there may be a registration fee.  For courses directly presented by the WisCon program there is no fee to attend but registration is requested.  We will try to accommodate walk in attendees but there may not be seating or copies of course material for those who are not pre-registered. There is very limited seating at some of the locations.  All courses may be cancelled without notice, especially if nobody is registered within a week of the event. The list will be updated on a routine basis as courses, dates and locations get finalized.  Check back for updates.

WisCon workshops are provided free of charge to the Wisconsin business community by the University of Wisconsin. This is possible because of a cooperative agreement between UW Madison and federal OSHA under the onsite consultation program. Our program services focus on OSHA covered businesses with less than 500 corporate wide employees.
