The National Conference on Worker Safety and Health (#COSHCON2020) is the only national gathering of its kind. We bring together a diverse, inclusive and bilingual group  of workers, occupational health and safety experts, unions, activists and academics united around common goals. We join together to: empower workers, make our workplaces safer and reduce the toll of on-the-job injuries, illnesses and fatalities. With a global pandemic, all of this matters more than ever, so COSHCON2020 is still on...

This year, we're just going to do it online!
