ASSE Recognizes Members
July 3, 2008

The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) recognized members for their help as volunteers in reaching millions of people and thousands of businesses on the importance of being safe at work during the May North American Occupational Safety and Health Week (NAOSH) and Occupational Safety and Health Professional Day recently. ASSE members from Massachusetts, New Jersey, Virginia, Oklahoma, Texas, Ohio and Washington, D.C., received the ASSE NAOSH Champion Award for going above and beyond. Four relatives of members were awarded the new “junior” NAOSH Champion award for their ongoing volunteer support. The awards were announced at the annual ASSE House of Delegates meeting in Las Vegas as part of Safety 2008.

Due to ASSE member efforts and the NAOSH Champion award winners, the sixth annual ASSE “Safety-on-the-Job” poster contest drew a 310 percent increase in poster participants from the year before for children aged 5-14. ASSE members’ children, grandchildren, aunts and uncles can enter the annual contest as well as children sponsored by ASSE members or chapters. Through this contest, which awards those that best illustrate being safe on the job, ASSE and its members seek to educate children on the importance of safety and what occupational safety, health and environmental professionals do to protect the people they work with and to keep their community safe. The NAOSH Champions also sponsored events at work as well as in their communities during NAOSH Week.
