ASSE SPYs Awarded at Safety 2008

As part of Safety 2008, ASSE's Professional Development Conference held last week in Las Vegas, the society bestowed its annual Region Safety Professional of the Year (SPY) awards to members from each of the eight society regions for their ongoing contributions to their regions, chapters, the society and their commitment to protecting people, property, and the environment.

The recipients were Dave R. Parsons of Salem, Ore.; Michelle D. Steeler of Boise, Idaho; Joel Tietjens, CSP, CSHM, of Spring, Texas; Pam B. Perrich, CIH, of Pensacola, Fla.; Beth A.
