ASSE Honors Members for Promoting Safety at Work Message

The American Society of Safety Engineers presented members from Hawaii, Indiana, Maryland, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Washington yesterday for their help and volunteers during May's North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week, May 3-9, 2009, and Occupational Safety and Health Professional (OSHP) Day, May 6, 2009. Honorees received the NAOSH Champion award at the annual ASSE House of Delegates meeting.

Through these members' efforts, the seventh annual ASSE "Safety-on-the-Job" kids' poster contest received nearly 1,000 entries from around the world with participants ranging in age from 5-14. Through the contest, which awards those that best illustrate being safe on the job, ASSE and its members sought to educate children on the importance of safety and the occupational safety, health, and environmental profession.

  • Charles E. Wigger Jr., CSP, of Chandler, Ind., safety director for Lamar Outdoor Advertising and an ASSE professional member.
