Clouds Part for Safety 2011 Attendees

CHICAGO -- Bright sunshine greeted exhibitors and attendees of the American Society of Safety Engineers' Safety 2011 conference on June 12, the opening day of the exposition in McCormick Place West. The sold-out expo hall was bustling, and ASSE spokeswoman Diane Hurns said overall registered attendance had exceeded 4,200.

At 4:30 p.m., ASSE's president, Darryl C. Hill, Ph.D., CSP, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Alhaji (Chief) Lateef A Alebiousu, the president of the Nigerian Institute of Safety Professionals. The two associations agreed to identify areas of mutual interest and activity, seek opportunities for cooperation in professional practice areas, and share best practices "in areas across the occupational safety and health spectrum."

They also will partner in training and development work of their members, according to the document, and will coordinate public releases of information concerning both organizations.

ASSE has nearly 34,000 members, and Hill will be its president until July 1, when Terrie S. Norris, CSP, ARM CPSI, of Long Beach, Calif., assumes that post. Rick Pollock, CSP, of Minneapolis becomes president-elect on the same date.

"This has been a great year for ASSE as we continue to grow globally, reach millions more on the importance of being safe at work through many of our ongoing educational efforts, continue to provide cutting edge educational programs and events that help build upon not only the positive reputation of the safety, health and environmental profession, but help our members and businesses around the globe address today's and tomorrow's workplace safety challenges," Hill said in a June 12 letter of welcome to media representatives covering this event.
