What can 'Brown' do for safety scholars? (2/8)

The American Society of Safety Engineers’ (ASSE) Foundation recently received a generous donation of $35,000 from Georgia-based United Parcel Service (UPS), in support of safety, health and environmental (SH&E) education through the ASSE Foundation’s annual scholarship program.

UPS will award six scholarships this spring through the ASSE Foundation; four will be available for undergraduate junior or senior year students working towards a degree in SH&E and two UPS diversity scholarships for junior or senior year students from a minority ethnic background or racial group pursuing an undergraduate degree in SH&E. The scholarships range from $4,000 to $5,300 and will be named the David Iden Memorial Safety Scholarship.

Altogether, UPS has donated more than $296,000 to the ASSE Foundation since 1996.

Students can submit their applications for scholarships to the foundation from Sept 1. through Dec. 1 each year. Applicants must be full-time students pursuing a B.S. in occupational safety and health or a related field. Applicants must be student members of ASSE, have a GPA of 3.0 out of a 4.0 system, have a good academic standing, and be recommended by a safety faculty member.

The Safety Selfie: It’s time to take a “snap shot” of your safety program and contemplate what others see

We all know perception is reality and that people perceive things differently. As a safety manager, your perception of your safety program almost certainly differs from that of your workers and your managers. We will use our “Safety Selfies” to expose weaknesses, real and perceived, and to talk about how best to make improvements.
