President’s Message – September 2015

Posted: Jun 03, 2016

The continuing theme for these monthly messages is to ensure our chapter meets and exceeds our duties as the host chapter for next year’s ASSE Safety Conference.

Time is running short for identifying local facilities for tour events. All suggestions are welcome (places within ~12 mile radius of downtown). Please email our liaison, Stanly Reid at sreid@mbci.com.

President’s Message – August 2015

Posted: Jun 03, 2016

As the host chapter for next year’s ASSE Safety Convention, we have been provided many opportunities to showcase our group on a national level. To be successful, we need to have our chapter step up to the plate and get involved. We need you.

An on going, and immediate need is to identify local industries and businesses that could host a tour of their facility or work site. All we ask of you is pass on companies that may be worthy candidates. If you know of a contact at a company, that would be a bonus.

Professional Safety

For more than 50 years, ASSE’s Professional Safety journal has been sharing the latest technical knowledge in SH&E—information that is constantly being developed through research and on-the-job experience. Each issue delivers practical guidance, techniques and solutions to help OSH professionals identify hazards, protect people, prevent injuries, improve work environments and educate management that investing in safety is a sound business strategy.

Establish a Safety Fund

Donors can establish a named academic scholarship or professional education grant fund through the ASSE Foundation. Scholarships and grants advance the safety profession and provide national recognition for the donor. The Foundation manages the administrative details of this program and works with the donor to provide qualified award recipients each year.
