2023 will be our 14th Year!


Safety Fest of the Great Northwest Pocatello is an annual training event that offers FREE safety and health training courses to workers, supervisors, and managers of all levels.  We offer this benefit to the community to provide safety and health training in an effort to help reduce fatalities, injuries, and illnesses.  We focus on keeping this training free so that local small businesses with minimal or non-existent training budgets never have to suffer when it comes to safety training.

No Shows

Please do not be late for your class, and please DON’T be a “No Show”. That is a seat that could have been filled by another willing student. Please respect that all our instructors volunteer their time and material to teach at Safety Fest.



As always, we could not do this event without all of the support and contributions from our Founding Partners, Community Partners, Sponsors, Vendors, Instructors, and all our volunteers. Be sure to recognize these community advocates of safety for all of the great support they have provided over the years.
