 “Workplace safety professionals want to stay current on best practices, industry trends and the latest product innovations,” said ASSP President Christine Sullivan, CSP, ARM in the press release. “Regardless of your level of expertise, there are always new safety management techniques and strategies to adapt to our changing world of work.” 

Of the attendees, 2,782 were first-time attendees. The Safety 2022 event also had 445 vendors in the expo hall, which was 82,000 square feet.

 “Our expo is so illuminating and informative that we get some safety and health professionals coming only for that,” Sullivan said in the press release.

The Safety 2023 conference will take place in San Antonio from June 5-7, 2023.
