Lots of Customer-Manufacturers Interaction at Expo
Why is it so valuable for manufacturers to attend Safety 2007? Statistics posted on the American Society of Safety Engineers' Web site indicate the value lies in the quality of the people walking the aisles for products and information. The numbers show almost half of the expo attendees are decision-makers from the top of their field, such as safety directors, managers, engineers, or consultants.
Here's where the numbers fall: President/Owner, 6 percent; Director of Safety or SH&E, 15 percent; SH&E Specialist, 14 percent; Industrial Hygienist, 2 percent; Loss Control Manager, 4 percent; Safety Supervisor, 5 percent; Safety Consultant, 7 percent; Safety or SH&E Manager, 27 percent; Safety Engineer, 9 percent; Other, 11 percent.
Key duties and responsibilities of conference attendees include safety management, safety administration, risk management/insurance, safety engineering, fire protection, industrial hygiene, construction, safety training, fleet safety, product safety, and off-the-job safety.
