Utah Conference on Safety and Industrial Hygiene

Each autumn, RMCOEH hosts the Utah Conference on Safety and Industrial Hygiene, welcoming hundreds of professionals in occupational and environmental health and safety to the University of Utah campus. Over three days, attendees engage in a blend of learning and networking opportunities. The conference serves as a platform for the exchange of ideas and innovations concerning important issues in workplace safety, environmental health, and community well-being. The conference kicks off with short courses, and transitions into two days of immersive breakout sessions spotlighting current concerns in safety, industrial hygiene, and worker well-being.

Registration is not yet open. The topics of this year's breakout sessions will be announced in the upcoming months.

Compensable Disability Forum

RMCOEH’s annual Compensable Disability Forum serves as a platform for professionals and employers to engage in dialogue and enhance their skills in addressing compensable disability issues within the workplace. The forum attracts a diverse group of attendees, including, attorneys, insurance adjusters, claims managers, risk managers, human resource managers, registered nurses, therapists, rehabilitation counselors, and more. Attendees have the opportunity to earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs), with additional credits given from various accrediting bodies such as adjuster hours from the state of Utah Insurance Department, Certified Case Manager Credits, and Certified Rehabilitation Counselor Credits. The forum has been submitted to the Montana Nurses Association for approval to award contact hours, leveraging their accreditation as an approver of continuing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.

Registration is not yet open. Check back later in the year to register for the 2025 forum.

Guest Lectures

RMCOEH offers online video lectures as an engaging method to earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs), requiring viewers to pass a 10-question quiz with a score of 80% or higher to earn credit, with each successful quiz granting 0.10 CEU. These lectures feature experts from diverse backgrounds in occupational and environmental health and safety, covering topics such as commercial driver safety and violence against firefighters. They provide valuable educational opportunities for both trainees and the public interested in these fields. Additionally, RMCOEH regularly hosts free, in-person lectures, welcoming anyone interested to attend.
