The Kentucky Safety and Health Network, Inc. and the Kentucky Labor Cabinet regretfully announce the cancellation of the 36th (almost) Annual Governor's Safety and Health Conference "Lite", set for September 28-29 in Bowling Green. The decision to cancel was difficult but necessary considering the spike in the number of COVID-19 Delta variant cases. The safety, health, and well-being of participants, speakers, staff, and other stakeholders is the highest priority.
If you already registered and paid for the conference, you will receive a refund. Conference organizers will work directly with registrants in coming weeks to issue refunds.
If you reserved a room at the Holiday Inn University Plaza, you should immediately contact the hotel at (800) HOLIDAY (465-4329) or (270) 745-0088 to cancel your reservation.
The KSHN Board of Directors and the Labor Cabinet are preparing to reconnect in 2022. Organizers are making plans to present the 2022 Governor's Safety and Health Conference and Exposition! The date and venue for the 2022 event will be announced soon.
