    Safety professionals must act fast to save on registration for one of the nation’s premier occupational safety and health education events. ASSE will end regular registration for SeminarFest 2018 on Jan. 22. Higher fees will apply to late registrants of the immersive learning experience held Feb. 1-8 at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas.
  • Veterans encouraged to explore post-military careers in workplace safety

Safety professionals keep people protected by analyzing and controlling on-the-job risks and hazards.
