The VPPPA 2022 Safety+ Symposium and Expo opened Tuesday, August 23, 2022 in Washington, D.C. with an opening address from Doug Parker, OSHA’s Assistant Secretary of Labor. Parker began by emphasizing the importance of making real change means not just focusing on compliance.
The signature event of the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) returned to Chicago in a big way in June as the occupational safety and health event attracted over 1,000 more attendees than the last time the global conference was held at McCormick Place.
ISHN interviewed former ASSP President Mark Hansen at the Safety 2022 conference in Chicago, and Mark highly recommends reading the book, “Deep Work,” by Cal Newport and published in 2017. “Deep Work” does not directly address workplace safety, but its application is obvious.
With two years of the COVID-19 pandemic impacting how businesses evaluate employee safety and with 2,000 workers treated for arc flash related injuries each year, now is the time for businesses to consider protocols like electrical safety to further protect their workers.
