Safety 2013 Shifts Into High Gear

OSHA Assistant Secretary Dr. David Michaels speaks at a June 25 afternoon session as the main part of the conference’s superb educational program gets under way.

LAS VEGAS – The Safety 2013 expo hall was the place to be June 24, but attendees also will be paying attention June 25 to the outstanding educational program assembled for the American Society of Safety Engineers' annual conference. The program is packed with strong sessions on key issues, such as GHS, I2P2, OSHA's new crane and derricks standard, and driving safety, and the agency's chief, Assistant Secretary Dr. David Michaels, will speak at a plenary session June 25.

Pre-conference seminars were well attended, several presenters said. A student roundtable program taking place from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. June 25 has experienced safety professionals giving current EHS students advice on career options and promising fields.

Michaels last month said he's interested in additional globally harmonized standards, such as a standard for safety and health management systems, that would be follow the formula of OSHA's recent revision of its Hazard Communication Standard to align it with the UN-recognized Globally Harmonized System for Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.
