The live event offers vital workplace emergency preparedness and workplace safety information and serves as a keynote of the May 3-9 North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH, www.asse.org/naosh09) Week.

Norris, CSP, ARM, CSPI, of Long Beach, CA, will present a program titled “Measuring Your Safety Program Success” from 2:45 to 3:45 p.m ET.
