"A slew of topics covering every range of occupational safety, health and the environment including the rebuilding of Iraq and Afghanistan, benchmarking warehouse safety, occupational asthma, mining emergencies, connecting safety to business needs and more will be available for attendees at June’s American Society of Safety Engineers’ (ASSE) Professional Development Conference and Exposition. ASSE’s Safety 2006 will be held this June 11-14 in Seattle, WA, at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center.

The conference features more than 200 concurrent educational sessions, 300 exhibitors, special pre- and post-conference seminars; several keynote presentations, technical tours and networking events. Session topics will include management, emergency response, fire protection, career/personal development, international safety and health, ergonomics, human behavior, construction and mining, environmental, transportation, healthcare and much, much more.

“The occupational safety, health and environmental profession is a dynamic field, where practices change rapidly and stakeholder expectations continue to climb,” ASSE Chair of the Conference Planning Committee Christine Sullivan, of Colorado, said. "An investment in professional development is absolutely essential to long-term career success. Safety 2006 not only meets those career development needs by providing a wide array of offerings covering the full spectrum of safety, health and the environment, but provides key information on issues both good and bad that our members deal with every day."   continued ...   (Via Safety Online)
