CVTC holds its fifth annual safety day

CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) -- Chippewa Valley Technical College held its fifth annual safety day Thursday afternoon at the Chippewa Falls campus, which drew over 50 participants from area businesses.

Safety day is organized through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration training services.

The event focused on workplace safety and navigating associated regulatory requirements. Participants attended workshop sessions on topics like risk analysis, drug testing, welding and electrical safety, active threats and OSHA standards.

Organizers say workplace safety is always a timely topic, and preparation to avoid injuries and tragedies is what safety day is all about.

“CVTC is looked upon to provide services to the community,” says Jon Leenhouts, trainer at CVTC. “Until we started offering safety day, there wasn’t anyone around that was able to offer the kind of classes and courses that we did include in this kind of event today.”
