studentAlthough the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) says a majority of those attending Safety 2013 June 24-27 in Las Vegas will have many years of experience in the safety field, lots of students are expected to participate in the convention as well.

According to ASSE, there are many reasons why students should make their way to Safety 2013:

Discounted price
The early student member registration rate is only $75.00 if they register before May 31, 2013. 

Networking opportunities and career assistance
Students will get a chance to interact with safety professionals from across the country and the world in Industry-Specific Practice Specialty Meetings and roundtables. This, along with the onsite Career Center, could be invaluable in helping them find an internship or a first job after graduation.

A Student & Young Professional Track
This track will offer perspectives tailored to those new to OEHS, with sessions like, “The Human Dynamics of Safety,” “The Value of Vulnerability,” and the “Fundamentals of SH&E: Basic Safety Management.”

A lot of learning packed into a short time
With more than 225 sessions presented over the course of four days, students may feel like they’ve been through an entire semester.

Technical tours
Tentatively scheduled tours include a construction site, LEEDS certified hotel property, casino behind-the-scenes, Springs preserve, Hoover Dam, Motor Speedway, and a titanium facility. 

The expo
With more than 450 exhibitors expected at the Safety 2013 Exposition, students will be able to see and try out a wealth of occupational safety-related products.

Las Vegas, Nevada
There’s a reason it’s one of the most popular destinations in the U.S.
