31st Annual Kingsport Area Safety Seminar

May 11, 2016


cost: $75:00

Students: $55.00 with ID

The first KASC Seminar was developed under the leadership of President Bill Hammond of Eastman. Named the "Construction Safety Seminar", it was designed to provide training for local industries and businesses. Bill recruited the services of the area TOSHA representatives as well as other local companies to implement what would become an annual event. There were 150 participants in the first seminar. Attendance grew to 400 by 1992, and by 1997 went over 550.  To emphasize the expanded nature of the classes being offered, the name was changed to "Safety Seminar" in 1991 as it was no longer just for the construction industry. In the early days of the Seminar, the attendees were from the local area. Today, we have attendees from throughout East Tennessee, including the Knoxville area. This event provides a low-cost opportunity for quality training on various topics. We also provide vendor booths at a reasonable rate.  For a pdf of the brochure, please visit the www.kptasc.org.

Students may attend for $55.00 with a valid ID.  ID must be included with registration form. 

Also, if you would like a vegetarian lunch and are registering online, please go to workshops and select that so me will be certain to have one for you.
