Association NewsThe Center for Safety and Health Sustainability Board of Directors is pleased to announce the election of Kathy A. Seabrook as its new Chair, succeeding Thomas F. Cecich. In her new role Ms. Seabrook sees engaging, influencing and informing a wide array of the Center’s stakeholders as key to the future success of the Center.

The Center led by Mr. Cecich has already achieved notable successes – from ground-breaking research to the creation of a global Advisory Council, an interactive digital platform and a free electronic news bulletin.

Mr. Cecich notes that “Ms. Seabrook has been a leader within the global OSH community for over two decades. A Chartered Fellow of IOSH and the 2013-2014 ASSE President, she is a recognized international speaker, leadership educator, seminar presenter and published author on global EHS management, OHS management systems and sustainability-safety alignment.”
