ASSETrish Ennis was installed last week as the 100th president of the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE).

A 23-year veteran of the occupational health and safety profession, Ennis vowed to continue to elevate the safety profession within the business community and work to deliver ASSE’s 36,000 members the programs and benefits they seek.

“Our vision is for all OSH professionals to be viewed as value-added business leaders capable of holding the highest positions in organizations and possessing the necessary competencies to manage a wide range of risks.” said Ennis at her induction ceremony before an audience attending Safety 2014, a three-day professional development conference and exposition, aimed at offering the latest in products, trends, issues, challenges and facing the industry.

“The voluntary standards we develop are gaining world-wide acceptance and the scope, breadth, and quality of our professional development offerings are recognized around the world, confirmed by the fact that this conference has representatives from over 40 countries,” Ennis said.

Ennis, who is currently a senior risk control consultant for Willis, North America, Inc. in Denver, Colorado, has held all offices in the Colorado Chapter. Her previous duties at ASSE included Senior Vice President and serving on several committees: Professional Development Conference Planning (2002-04, 2008); Risk Symposium Task Force (2005); Nominations and Elections (2006); Strategic Planning (2006-08); Finance (2007-08); Bylaws (2008- 10); and Compensation (2010, 2011). Trish was chair of the 2008 Future Safety Leaders Conference and served two terms as vice president, professional development (2009-13).

 Founded in 1911, the Des Plaines-based ASSE is the oldest professional safety organization and is committed to protecting people, property and the environment.
