ASSE Construction Safety Symposium
November 20, 2008

Injuries and fatalities due to crane accidents, falls, electrical accidents, and substance abuse occur often at construction sites worldwide. The past few years we have witnessed an increase in crane accidents worldwide. The American Society of Safety Engineers’ (ASSE) “Solutions in Construction Safety” symposium to be held November 20-21, 2008 in Scottsdale, AZ, aims to provide occupational safety, health and environmental professionals and other attendees information on effective practices and solutions to address these issues from experts in construction safety. The symposium will feature sessions on crane safety; crisis operations that followed; the positive return on investing in safety; preventing strains/sprains and slips/trips/falls; protecting the public; the issues of control of substance abuse at a construction job site; and lessons learned in fall protection along with a panel presentation titled “Big Projects, Big Challenges” and “Share the Solutions” roundtables.

T. Shane Bush, CPT, president of BushCo, Inc., of ID, will provide the keynote presentation titled “Right Brain Leadership for the Future of Construction Safety” and Jay Greenspan of JMJ Associates of TX, will present “Create a Breakthrough in Your Construction Safety Performance” for the general session.

In addition, ASSE will be host to other professional development programs prior to the symposium.
