May 10, 2023

PARK RIDGE, IL — The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) will again welcome Doug Parker, assistant secretary of labor for occupational safety and health, to a special general session at Safety 2023 in San Antonio. Parker will discuss the latest activities and future plans of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to protect workers across the country.

The newly added session to ASSP’s annual conference and exposition will start at 10:30 a.m. CT on Wednesday, June 7, in front of thousands of workplace safety and health professionals. It will be held in the Stars at Night Ballroom at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, 900 E. Market Street, along the River Walk.

Parker will present “An OSHA Update” that will include regulatory priorities, enforcement actions and outreach initiatives. The 60-minute session will include an interactive Q&A with questions submitted via text by attendees. Afterward, Parker will meet with journalists at 11:45 a.m.

Parker became the 13th assistant secretary of labor for occupational safety and health on Nov. 3, 2021. He participated in a similar session last June at Safety 2022 in Chicago.

The special session will be part of a dynamic three-day program designed to inform and inspire occupational safety and health professionals attending ASSP’s signature event, held June 5-7.
