OREGON: Cannabis growers and extractors are invited to an unprecedented opportunity to learn from government and business leaders about safety and health in the cannabis industry as part of a two-day event in Bend next month.
Oregon’s Occupational Safety and Health Division (Oregon OSHA), a division of the Department of Consumer and Business Services, is one of several partners presenting the Sept. 18-19 cannabis forum – “Safety and Health in the Cannabis Industry: From Seed to Shatter” – at the Riverhouse on the Deschutes.
The cannabis forum is part of the larger Central Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Conference, which will tackle a range of other workplace health and safety issues.
The forum arrives as the industry surrounding cannabis – a legal agricultural commodity in Oregon – continues to evolve. It will address multiple health and safety topics, and afford participants a question-and-answer session. It will feature speakers from Oregon OSHA; the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC); Oregon Department of Agriculture; the Portland and Bend fire departments; and Oregon-based grow and extraction operations.
