Puget Sound Area Safety Summit

The Safety Summit is dedicated to forming a networked alliance of government, management, and labor to develop methods and solutions for continuous improvement of workplace safety, with the goal of reducing workplace injuries and accidents to zero. Through the Safety Summit, we place an additional focus on increasing educational opportunities and safety awareness and improving safety practices throughout the state.


We are excited to provide a virtual format so that we may continue to educate ourselves on important safety topics and network with one another during the COVID19 crisis.

We are using Microsoft Teams. You may first need to download Microsoft Teams to your computer if you don't already have it. To download to your computer click here. To download to your mobile device click here.
