ASSE to Host Virtual Symposium on Safety Management
The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) will host a live Virtual Symposium, “Best-in-Class Safety Management: U.S. and International Practices and Approaches,” April 20 – 24, 2009. The symposium will focus on implementing and managing safety programs to meet the needs of the United States and global business environment.
The virtual symposium is a new service offered by ASSE in an effort to reach a greater audience, as ASSE understands that diverse and active audiences in the global marketplace require flexibility in education offerings, which a virtual symposium provides. The symposium will include examples and case studies from industry leaders on a variety of safety management systems; information on United States and international standards and how to deal with the standards and regulations of other countries; sessions that explore how to communicate a safety philosophy; discussions on how to integrate safety into corporate ethics and social responsibility; ways to benchmark an organization against a variety of indicators of safety excellence; and techniques for accurately measuring the safety performance of your organization.
Participants will experience the feel of being in a live, multi-session conference, but will be able to join the sessions as their schedules permit and view sessions they missed as a recording later in the day. For more information, call 847-699-2929, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
