My vision for the ASSP Public Sector Practice Specialty is to become an advocate and resource for all safety professionals serving the public sector.
My 12 years of experience have shown that public sector safety professionals face a different set of monetary, regulatory and political challenges than their private sector counterparts.
As assistant administrator of the Public Sector Practice Specialty, I will enhance awareness of occupational safety and health specific to the public sector and boost the group's endeavors to identify and provide solutions to overcome inherent occupational health and safety obstacles.
For example, I would develop training and promote adoption of the ANSI/ASSP Z10 and ISO 45001 occupational health and safety management systems, as well as the NIOSH Total Worker Health
