NOVA Chapter Hosts Chinese OSH Professionals

Leaders of ASSE’s NOVA Chapter (David Wenzel, president, and Justin Crandol, government affairs chair) hosted a delegation of safety professionals from China’s Hubei province on March 11, 2015. During the meeting, the group discussed local business practices and OSH concerns in both countries. Wenzel shared information about ASSE, its outreach efforts and membership benefits, and shared his journey with ASSE and what it has meant to him and his career. Additionally, ASSE members spoke on the value of continuing education and certification programs and opportunities that exist in the U.S.
