Free Safety Course to be Offered at NASCC

A typical shop workflow.

Attendees registered for NASCC: The Steel Conference (March 25-27 in Nashville) are eligible to attend a free 7.5-hour Short Course titled “OSHA Targeted Training: Worker Hazards in Fabrication Facilities and Service Centers.” The course will take place during the conference on Thursday, March 26, from 8 a.m. - noon and 1:30 p.m. - 5 p.m.

This training program is designed for attendees to learn how to act as safety ambassadors in their companies and take the materials presented back to their workplace to train their fellow workers. Attendees will learn how to reduce the risks of workers performing tasks within fabrication facilities, steel service centers and other related firms.

Short Courses are normally an extra-cost item, but the session’s fee is being waived (due to a grant from OSHA), so you can attend for free! To add this course to your registration, simply log into your conference registration and add "Short Course 4.” Attendees are also eligible to receive 7.5 PDHs.

In addition, the conference registration fee may be waived for those involved in fabrication or service center safety activities. To apply to have your conference fee waived, please contact AISC’s Tom Schlafly at

This training session is the first in a new series of steel shop safety programs being developed by the AISC Safety Committee. To learn more, read the conference preview article “Targeted Training” in our current March issue.
