With hundreds of wastewater professionals participating, you’ll have a chance to reconnect with friends, participate in important safety training sessions, and enjoy a delicious BBQ lunch from Buckhorn Grill. We’ll also have some fun, ending the day with door prize drawings.

Northern Safety Day is a must-attend training event, providing you with important safety reminders and concepts to help keep you and your team safe.
