Verona, NY, February 24, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- For years, the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) has done a great job kicking off the production season with a seminar they called the Spring Thaw. The Spring Thaw was an opportunity for laborers, supervisors, company owners and equipment manufacturers to get together with MSHA to discuss updates in regulation, policy and procedure as well as new training ideas. In an effort to carry on this great tradition, Catamount Consulting, LLC has organized a Spring Thaw Training Conference to be held at Tuning Stone Casino in Verona, NY. This event is scheduled for March 23rd and 24th, 2011. With the help of local companies and vendors, this cost effective event has expanded into two days with over 30 different safety topics applicable to all personnel operating in the construction and mining industries. Patton Boggs, one of the nation’s top health and safety law practices will be featured as well as Richard Wobby, a nationally recognized motivational speaker.
A variety of topics will be presented including: Dealing with regulatory groups; Electrical; Rigging; Accident Prevention; Hazard Awareness; Lock-out/Tag-out; First Aid/CPR; Mobile Equipment and Supervisory Training workshops. “I wanted to bring the same top notch training we see at all the national conferences to our back yard in Upstate New York” said Scott McKenna, one of the conference organizers. Registration is $99/pp and includes 2 days with over 30 presentations, access to vendors, and food and beverage throughout. For more information or to register, please call 518-623-2352.
