Safety 2014: 'Yet Another Record-Breaking Expo'

Thomas E. Kramer, chair of ASSE's Professional Development Conference Planning Committee for this year's annual conference, said attendees from 48 countries are participating this year.

ORLANDO -- Safety 2014 got under way in earnest June 9 as ASSE President Kathy A. Seabrook, CSP, recapped the highlights of her year's presidency and representatives of IOSH and the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering welcomed attendees inside the Orando County Convention Center.

Thomas E. Kramer, P.E., CSP, who chairs the Professional Development Conference Planning Committee for Safety 2014, told the audience that the event offers "yet another record-breaking expo" and that attendees from 48 countries are participating.

Seabrook discussed her participation in PDCs and events in the United States and 10 other countries during the past year and ASSE's involvement in international standards for OSH management systems. "It's a profession that's gaining greater worldwide value and greater worldwide influence," she added.

Tim Briggs of IOSH -- it has 45,800 members to ASSE's 36,000-plus members -- discussed the growing importance of corporate social responsibility campaigns and said IOSH and allied groups believe OSH should be an integral part of them. "By taking safety beyond the workplace and into communities, we improve this world," Briggs said.
