Insight from the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) 2013 Conference

Cardno ChemRisk attended Safety 2013, the premiere conference for professionals in safety and occupational health field hosted by the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE). We were joined by thousands of other attendees representing manufacturing, government and public administration, agriculture, construction, and insurance. During this gathering, we delivered two well-received technical presentations: Settling the Dust – Silica Past, Present, and Future; and Surface Spills in Hydraulic Fracturing and Recommendations for Safety Management. One topic that everyone was interested in is OSHA’s priorities over the next few years, with David Michaels and his staff again at the helm for President Obama’s second term. Michaels touched on many of OSHA’s priorities during the Plenary Session earlier this week, including preventing fatalities in grain handling facilities, health and safety for temporary workers, reducing rates of illness and injury in healthcare settings, and progress on implementation of the new Hazard Communication Standard.

Cardno ChemRisk is grateful for the opportunity to present at Safety 2013, and look forward to next year.
