The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) will shift its Safety 2020 Professional Development Conference and Exposition to a virtual education event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The ASSP Board of Directors decided to present “Safety 2020: Virtual” after weeks of assessing risk factors and monitoring the latest information from government and public health authorities.
ASSP’s signature event – the nation’s largest annual conference for occupational safety and health professionals that was scheduled for June 23-25 in Orlando – highlights best practices, industry trends and the latest product innovations. The conference and expo are opportunities for attendees to gain knowledge and network with peers to make organizations safer while advancing their careers. The online experience is in development for the same three-day period.
