ASSE November Construction Safety Symposium
October 16, 2008

Injuries and fatalities due to crane accidents, falls, electrical accidents, and substance abuse occur often at construction sites worldwide. The American Society of Safety Engineers’ (ASSE) “Solutions in Construction Safety” symposium to be held in Arizona this November 20-21, 2008, 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; the Minneapolis, MN, bridge collapse and the crisis operations that followed; 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.

In addition, ASSE will be host to other professional development programs prior to the symposium. November 17-19, 2008 there will be a three-day preparation for the Construction Health and Safety Technician (CHST) Certification examination. November 16 – 19, 2008 there will be an ASSE Math Review Seminar, the ASP/CSP and the Corporate Safety Management seminar prior to the symposium.
