Safety Engineers Schedule Symposium on Proactive Safety Management
October 23, 2009

To help safety and health professionals enhance leadership skills and to make safety an integral part of their organizations, the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) will host a two-day Proactive Safety Management symposium this November 12th-13th at the Hyatt Regency in Miami, FL.

The keynote presentation Keeping Safety Relevant in a Socially Connected World, will be given by Barry Libert, chairman and CEO of Mzinga, a provider of social software solutions for human resources/learning, customer support and marketing. Mr. Libert will present a broad overview of the opportunities and benefits of social networking and how social networking in the workplace can bring in a new dimension into organizations’ safety efforts.

Mr. Libert will also lead a workshop examining practical aspects and applications for the use of social networking in safety management and how to evaluate an organization’s social readiness through examples from company success stories. This workshop aims to help attendees learn how to use social technology to connect with co-workers; reinvent one’s safety effort; and, use steps for getting started.

Leading authority on safety management and past ASSE President Samuel J. Gualardo, MA, CSP, president of National Safety Consultants, Inc., of Salix, PA, will address the attendees and discuss how to overcome organization barriers to attain safety and health performance excellence.
