A collaborative relationship between the Air Force Safety Center (AFSC) and ASSE is underway after Tim Fisher and Tom Kerschner visited the Kirkland Air Force Base in New Mexico.
ASSE is partnering with Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) to raise awareness of two new standards targeting the industries involved in building and maintaining communications towers:
ANSI/TIA-322, Loading Criteria, Analysis, and Design Related to the Installation, Alteration and Maintenance of Communication Structures;
Two ANSI/ASSE confined spaces standards have been approved: 1) the revised ANSI/ASSE Z117.1, Safety Requirements for Confined Spaces, which addresses confined spaces in general, and 2) ANSI/ASSE A10.43, Confined Spaces in Construction, which addresses more specifically construction and demolition operations.
ASSE Foundation’s Professional Education Grant Program provides funding to help OSH professionals expand their knowledge and advance their education.
ASSE member Keith Marks has been appointed as executive vice president and manager of risk engineering services and commercial insurance for Chubb North America. Marks will oversee the delivery of risk engineering service programs for commercial customers in North America.
Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS) has selected Joseph L. McKillips, CSP, as its new executive director. NETS is a public-private partnership dedicated to reducing traffic crashes on and off the job.
Do you know someone considering a career change or a high-school student researching a future occupation? Direct them to ASSE’s revamped Becoming an OSH Professional web page.
Many OSH professionals have parents or children who are also in the profession. Did your son or daughter follow in your footsteps? Did a parent’s involvement in the safety profession encourage you to follow in their footsteps? ASSE would like to hear from you.
