The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) maintains data-driven and solutions-based positions on issues that impact occupational safety and health.

It’s Tuesday Sept 14 at the ASSP conference in Austin and on a day when an afternoon general session addresses “Well-Being: What Does It Have to Do With Safety?” a tour of the expo floor finds numerous vendors offering health-related services. And we’re not just talking about first aid kits.

Workplace safety expos used to be the stuff of hard hats and other safety hardware – personal protective equipment. The market was blue collar.

The American Society of Safety Professionals’ Safety21 Conference and Expo kicked off this morning in Austin, TX. Approximately 2,200 safety pros are here, with another 2,500 attending virtually online, according to Blaine Krage, ASSP senior media relations specialist.
Safety and health professionals have just a few days to sign up for the online component of Safety 2021 before the rate increases on Aug. 28.
