ASSE recently heard about two long-time members, Jack Bacastow and Sam Cahan, who have left their mark on the profession and on those around them. Their commitment and lasting influence are more evidence that safety isn’t just a career, it is a calling. We hope you find a bit of inspiration in these two brief stories.
ASSE has posted the preliminary slate for its 2017 elections.
Society-level offices up for election this year include senior vice president, director-at-large, vice president, professional affairs, and vice president, region affairs.
Registration for ASSE’s, Safety 2017 is now open. The professional development conference will take place June 19-22 in Denver, CO.
Twenty hours of education will provide attendees 1.8 CEUs for the full conference, which will offer 240 sessions across 20 OSH subject areas.
In 2016, these members reached significant years of ASSE membership and service. Thank you for your continued support of the Society and the OSH profession.

ASSE, the ASSE Foundation and various stakeholders have established a working research agenda to help focus the decisions of academic, nonprofit and government entities seeking to conduct OSH research. The January 2017 issue of Professional Safety shares highlights of that research agenda, explaining three OSH research focus areas.
