ASSEF Awards $9,500 in Professional Development Grants

The ASSE Foundation has awarded 16 professional development grants to help OSH practitioners advance in their careers. The grants are supported by contributions from corporations, members, and individuals and total $9,500, ASSEF said.

The foundation said new contributions allowed the DaimlerChrysler Corporation Fund to set up a new grant program this year with ASSEF. The first recipients of this grant are Kristy N. Milo, EHS coordinator at BenVenue Laboratories of Mentor on the Lake, Ohio, and Mary Ellen Holvey, senior industrial hygienist at Leader Professional Services, Inc. of Pittsford, N.Y. Another new program, the Medina Professional Development Grant, was created by ASSE member Rixio Medina, CSP, and his wife, Alejandra, with three recipients this year: Cynthia King, a safety specialist at City of Tucson-Water Department, Tucson, Ariz., awarded $595 for the ASSE Corporate Safety Management Course; Heather Earl, safety & health technical director at Walt Disney World Resorts, Winter Haven, Fla., awarded $655 for the ASSE PDC registration fee; and Laverne Ogieste, a safety engineer at the U.S. Department of Defense, Edgewood, Md., awarded $750 for the Certified Safety Professional workshop.

One of the recipients of the newly established Texas Safety Foundation Professional Development Grant is Smart Acha, HSE specialist engineer at Chevron Nigeria Ltd.
