ASSE President Discusses Safety
October 7, 2009

In his recent address to attendees at the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering’s (CSSE) conference in Calgary, Alberta, American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) President C. Christopher Patton, CSP, discussed how safety, health and environmental (SH&E) professionals are weathering the difficult economic times and how businesses could lose in productivity, efficiency and profitability without safety.

He went on to say that companies have seen that an investment in safety has a positive impact on the bottom line and noted that letting these systems fall apart means losses in efficiency, productivity and profitability. Therefore, maintaining these systems during a struggling economy is critical to survival.

Mr. Patton noted that one of our key partnerships is with the members of the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering through the North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week efforts held each May.
