Registration opens for fall session of SafetyFOCUS

Registration opened today for the fall session of SafetyFOCUS, the semi-annual in-depth education experience from the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP). The hybrid event will take place Sept. 18-22 in Arlington, VA, and online, helping workplace safety and health professionals expand their knowledge through collaborative learning and engaging discussions on a broad range of topics.

Using case studies, real-life examples and proven successes, expert instructors will explore key issues and provide new perspectives and strategies to help solve real-world safety and health challenges. SafetyFOCUS is ASSP’s second-largest education event, which was expanded to twice a year in 2022.

The one-, two- and three-day courses are standards-based and focus on business and leadership skills, certification preparation, fall protection, risk assessment and management, safety management systems, and comprehensive worker health. Attendees build their own schedule to fit their unique professional development plan, whether they are new to the industry or a seasoned professional.

In-person courses will take place at the AMA Washington Area Conference Center. Instructors will facilitate courses from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET each day. Online education will be accessible through ASSP’s Live Virtual Classroom via Zoom. Participants will have the same positive and focused learning experience whether they attend in person or online.

Attendees who register for the full week of training either in person or online can earn up to 3.5 continuing education units (CEUs) that will help them maintain a range of professional certifications. Participants will also expand their professional networks and take away relevant information and practical guidance they can immediately implement to help their organizations prevent worker injuries, illnesses and fatalities.

Safety and health professionals can get the discounted early rate by registering online by June 29. Groups of five or more from the same company can save even more by contacting ASSP Customer Service at customerservice@assp.org. ASSP members save on registration and receive discounts on all of the Society’s education, training and workplace safety standards.

First-time attendees who have never been an ASSP member will receive a free one-year membership and complimentary memberships in a practice specialty and common interest group.
