ASSE Names 2017 Outstanding Safety Educators

Georgi Popov and Sathy Rajendran are the recipients of the award.

DENVER-- According to a news release, ASSE has named Georgi Popov and Sathy Rajendran as the 2017 William E. Tarrants Outstanding Safety Education Award winners.

Popov, Ph. D., QEP, CMC, is a professor in the safety sciences program at the University of Central Missouri (UCM). He is a consultant and advisor to committees at ASSE, NIOSH and AIHA.

"Without question, Dr. Popov is the role model for educators in the field of occupational safety and health," said Bruce Lyon, advisory board chair to UCM's safety sciences program. "I am continually amazed by his expertise in risk assessment, prevention through design, business concepts and overall critical thinking. He is highly regarded by his peers and students, and a thoughtful leader in our profession."

Rajendran, Ph.D., ARM, CSP, CRIS, is an associate professor and program director of the safety and health management program at Central Washington University (CWU). His research has been cited more than 500 times in science journals, according to the report.

"He's truly one of the few gems that one will encounter in a 40-year safety career," said Michael Fallon, chair of the Industry Advisory Council for CWU's safety and health management program. "He's inspirational and nurturing to his students while setting high expectations for performance. I'm hard pressed to think of better traits for someone who is educating the safety professionals of tomorrow."

Both educators will be honored during the 2017 ASSE conference & expo this week.
