About the Conference

Thanks to all who joined us for COSHCON2022.
We look forward to seeing you again next year.

The  National Conference on Worker Safety and Health  (#COSHCON2022)  is the only national gathering of its kind. We bring together a diverse, inclusive and bilingual group   of workers, occupational health and safety experts, unions, activists and academics united around common goals. We join together to: celebrate and encourage workers’ power, make our workplaces safer and reduce the toll of on-the-job injuries, illnesses and fatalities.

Conference Features

  • It brings together  organizers, activists, trainers, worker leaders, advocates, academics-–  everyone fighting for workers’ lives  and well-being from across the country (and beyond);
  • It has a  specific focus on workers’ organizing for safety and health, including a full track dedicated to organizers at all levels of growth (from budding to advanced) from all kinds of settings (worker centers, unions, COSH groups, or community organizers);
  • Combined with  technical occupational safety and health workshops, such as investigation of workplace tragedies, workers’ compensation legal support, heat/climate related hazards, and of course, the latest on COVID-19 science and protections;
  • We are going  virtual  this year, which means  flexible schedules  â€“ and though we prefer you stay with us the whole time, you can choose what’s most relevant to you;
  • All the general sessions, workshops, and the conference app itself will be  fully bilingual in English and Spanish; and
  • Importantly,  worker centers’ participation is fully sponsored this year, so free registration for staff and members of worker centers!


The price to attend the conference is $99. The advance discount will be $90 before December 6, 2022.  Please Note:  Scholarships are available to anyone who needs one.   Workers and activists with limited income attend for free. Cost should never be a barrier to attending COSHCON!
