Standards-Based Education Series Spotlights Safety Management Systems

Mar 15, 2024

PARK RIDGE, IL — The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) will host a third installment of its workplace safety education series called “Stand Up for Standards.” A live two-hour webinar on safety management systems will take place at 11 a.m. CT on March 29, helping safety and health professionals create a road map for identifying hazards and eliminating risks to improve organizational performance.

“Stand Up for Standards: ANSI/ASSP Safety Management Systems” will provide an overview and implementation practices for the ANSI/ASSP Z10.0-2019 standard.

Safety experts Amy Timmerman, M.S., CSP, CHES, Danyle Hepler, CSP, CESCO, CPEA, Joe Wolfsberger, M.S., CSP, CIH, and Greg Zigulis, CSP, CIH, CHSP, will share real-world experiences and practical guidance to help attendees reduce injuries, illnesses and fatalities on work sites across various industries.

The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session. Attendees will earn 0.2 continuing education units (CEUs) and receive digital copies of the Z10 safety management system standard and two implementation guides to help their organizations prevent many hazards.

Voluntary consensus standards provide expert guidance on industry best practices and fill gaps where federal standards don’t exist. Companies rely on them to drive improvement, injury prevention and sustainability. With government regulations slow to change and often out of date, compliance is not sufficient to protect workers.

Safety and health professionals should register online for this third event in ASSP’s workplace safety education series, which features a different standards-related topic every quarter.
