9th Annual ASSE Kids’ Safety-on-the-Job Poster Contest

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

In honor of NAOSH week, we thought it might be nice to feature a sampling of safety tips from the next crop of safety engineers. It’s nice to see these kids are learning such important lessons early. Good job, kids!

Celebrating a century of safety with ASSE

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

Kudos to the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE), whose 32,000 members will be celebrating the organization’s 100 year mark during the annual North American Occupational Health & safety Week (or NAOSH week, for short), which runs from May 1 to May 7. Annually, ASSE teams up with the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering (CSSE) in the first week of May to raise public awareness about safety.
Here’s a few of the resources that are available
