Oregon RIMS is a proud supporter of Kids Chance of Oregon! Through our 2022 Oregon RIMS Golf Tournament, we were able to raise $11,550 for this amazing organization that provides financial support to further the education of the children of Oregon workers who have been severely injured, or disabled or killed as a result of work related injuries or occupational diseases. https://www.kidschanceoforegon.com/
Oregon RIMS enjoyed participating in the Fall 2022 Career Fair at Portland State University. We met some promising future Rising Risk Professionals at this well attended event!

See Page 4 of the newsletter for the list of additional upcoming events, and be sure to save the date for the Annual Education Day on June 17th. Keep an eye out for [...]
