About KSHN

The Kentucky Safety and Health Network, founded in 1985 and incorporated in 1986, represents individuals from all facets of Kentucky's workplaces. Membership is open to any and all individuals with an interest in occupational safety and health. The Network is governed by a President, President-Elect, Secretary, and Treasurer. A volunteer Board of Directors, elected from the membership, directs the activities of the Network.

Our mission is to increase the awareness of safety and health in the workplace. The organization draws on the experience and knowledge of its members who represent business, education, government and labor.

The objectives of the Network are to:

  • Safeguard Kentucky's working men and women from those hazards which threaten personal safety and health;
  • Actively support education and training designed to eliminate injuries and illnesses which result from human or mechanical errors in the workplace;
  • Conduct a vigorous and continuing program of education and training for business, labor, and government designed to focus attention upon workplace hazards and how they may be avoided through cooperative efforts;
  • Promote specialized services designed to assist members in establishing and maintaining effective safety and health programs;
  • Promote voluntary development and implementation of workplace health and safety strategies or programs;
  • Present an annual conference to promote workplace safety and health; and,
  • Support the funding of the Kentucky Safety and Health Network Foundation, Inc. to facilitate awarding scholarships in the disciplines of occupational safety and health, industrial hygiene, and public health.
