2023 Safety 7 Conference & Expo

The Region VII VPPPA Board of Directors are excited to announce that the 2023 Safety 7 Conference & Expo is up and running. The conference will be held at the Branson Convention Center in Branson, MO. On June 19-21, 2023, with a Special Government Employee (SGE) class following on June 22-24. There will also be an OSHA 10 class following the conference on June 22 & 23, 2023.

Come early and enjoy the following pre-conference workshops on Monday the 19th: Application, Sustaining Star Quality (SSQ) and CPR/First Aid/AED

Our keynote speaker will be Kina Hart. Kina tells an inspiring account not only of her survival, but how she recognized telltale signs leading up to the accident, and why each of us should apply the lessons learned to everyday hazards and risks we simply don’t need to take. Her message resonates with everyone from industrial workers to the people that manage the productivity and safety of the workplace, calling upon her audience to take their safety more seriously in every kind of work or other life activity. Through her warmth, honesty, and humor, she entertains in a way that assures her resilience will leave a lasting impression.

Kina has a bachelor’s degree in education. She is a second-degree black belt and has competed in 13 marathons. She is an avid scuba diver, snow skier, wake boarder and wake surfer.  She was honored in the 2002 Winter Olympic Games as an Olympic Torch Runner.  Kina continues to work with Master Lock helping to share and teach the importance of LOTO. Kina has been a Motivational Safety Speaker for 13 years and has shared her message across the United States and abroad.

Come and participate in the second annual Region VII Cornhole tournament, along with great workshops, speakers, silent auction and networking opportunities.

If you have never been to Branson or haven’t been in a while, the Hilton at the Branson Convention Center has agreed to offer the Region VII a special rate for three days before and/or three days after the conference; so bring your family and enjoy the beautiful Ozarks, Table Rock Lake and the amazing entertainment in Branson, MO.


Stay safe,
