The National Conference on Worker Safety and Health (#COSHCON20) is the only national gathering of its kind. We bring together a diverse, inclusive and bilingual group of participants 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.

  • 40+ workshops and panels (See the 2019 Program)
  • Inspiring and diverse keynote speakers
  • Two-day Expo and Poster Contest
  • National COSH Awards Banquet
  • Great union-friendly facility with amenities for everyone
  • Sponsored by workers and worker advocates

The Expo at COSHCON:

The National Conference on Worker Safety and Health (#COSHCON20) provides a unique opportunity to reach a targeted audience. The Expo is located in a high-traffic, intimate setting that offers one-on-one contact with attendees. #COSHCON20 draws a unique, bilingual audience of over 300 working people, academics, government agencies (such as OSHA, CDC, NIOSH and others) union members and leadership, workplace safety advocates, young and veteran academics, public health and legal professionals and occupational health and safety consultants. Our diverse attendees are all motivated to implement strategies for the highest levels of workplace protection, and are seeking new products, strategies and ideas to help meet this goal.

Maritime Conference Center:

The Maritime Conference Center sits on over 80 beautiful acres of land and is located four miles from Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. This union facility has the best staff, food and atmosphere for ensuring that conference participants can maximize the conference: a convenient location, easy travel accessibility, exercise and relaxation amenities.

Awards Night Banquet:

Thursdaysday night is our annual National COSH Awards banquet where we gather to honor those in our movement who have achieved excellence in the effort to ensure all workers can go home safe at the end of their shift. Awardees are celebrated for their accomplishments with stories and speeches and then we dance the night away with a dj and cash bar afterwards.

Sponsored by Workers:

Our sponsors are always for workers. From unions to nonprofit advocacy groups, occupational health and safety organizations to law firms, our conference is different because it puts working people and their safety first and our sponsors recognize that the safest workplaces recognize the wisdom and expertise of the people doing the job.
