Live from Safety 2008: Fire Protection Engineer Receives Service Award

The American Society of Safety Engineers Foundation presented Lawrence E. Oldendorf, P.E., of Burbank, Ill., with its Distinguished Service Award yesterday during the society’s House of Delegates meeting at Safety 2008—ASSE’s annual Professional Development Conference, taking place June 9-12 in Las Vegas. The Foundation said it chose Oldendorf for his outstanding achievement in, commitment to, and support of the Foundation.

Currently the president of Burbank-based Fire & Safety Engineering Services, Oldendorf retired from the U.S. Department of Energy after serving as a safety and fire protection engineer and management analysis officer for 31 years with oversight of six national laboratories and two government laboratories. He has been a safety and fire protection engineering consultant for special hazard facilities since 1980 and a standards writer and technical advisor for fire protection research involving nuclear facility system operations.

An emeritus professional member and ASSE fellow, Oldendorf has volunteered in the society’s programs for more than 40 years. Among his many roles in the organization, he has served as ASSE Standards Development Committee chair and vice president, research and standards; chair of the ASSE Governmental Affairs Committee; society board member for nine years; society president; and chair of the Technical and Professional Committee. He also served on the ASSE Foundation Board of Trustees as vice chair and was the foundation’s research chair for six years. Currently, he is also a member of the ASSE Greater Chicago Chapter and continues to serve on the Foundation Research Committee.

"It is truly my honor and privilege to give the ASSE Foundation’s Distinguished Service Award to Larry,” said Foundation Chair Cynthia L. Roth, COHN. “While serving as research chair for the ASSE Foundation, he helped craft and launch the Foundation’s Research program by developing an application and review process that provides researchers with a vehicle to share their results with the ASSE membership.” Oldendorf also helped develop the criteria for the Foundation’s sponsorship of the Liberty Mutual Fellowship program, established in 2000, Roth added.
