First Impression: ASSP Safety 2022 Experience

For the past three months, I've been writing about many topics relating to health and safety from behind a computer screen.

Today, I was able to step away from the screen and experience everything in person. It was a wonderful experience to be able to meet with professionals and hear from influential people in the safety world.

I was surprised at the variety and number of sessions available over the course of the three days. The sessions I attended were extremely informational and impactful, ranging in topics from DEI to Musculoskeletal Disorders.

Seeing the expo floor for the first time, I was impressed at the number of exhibitors and the displays. There are hundreds of companies, all displaying their products and services in unique ways.

It's wonderful to see so many people come together for worker health and safety. I look forward to the last day!
