ASSE Kicks Off NAOSH 2011
April 28, 2011

Following the horrific March 25, 1911, Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in New York City that took the lives of 146 women and men while at work, the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) was born committed to protecting people, property and the environment. ‘Celebrating a Century of Safety’ is this year’s North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week theme.

Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Department of Transportation (DOT) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) officials are set to join ASSE officials and 50 other organizations to celebrate the young art contest winners who developed products aimed at sending a message about the need to be safe at work and on how safety belts save lives. Each year close to 5,000 people die from on-the-job injuries in the U.S., the majority of those from transportation accidents, and millions more suffer from on-the-job illnesses, enough to fill up the Indianapolis Speedway five times.

Winners in the 9th annual ASSE kids’ ‘safety-on-the-job’ poster contest for kids aged 5-14 and their families from across the U.S. will be featured along with the ‘Be Ready. Be Buckled’ contest.
