Virtual education series spotlights safety management systems

Occupational safety and health professionals can get a road map to continuous safety improvement by attending SafetyFOCUS: Safety Management Systems, a two-day virtual event offered by the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP). The sessions on Sept. 16-17 are part of ASSP’s new series of virtual education events that enable safety professionals to stay current on best practices while dealing with shrinking travel budgets and widespread physical distancing.

The immersive event – an offshoot of the Society’s annual SafetyFOCUS conference – features industry experts who will share the latest safety management system knowledge and techniques on a convenient digital platform. Concurrent sessions will cover many topics, including a management system approach to COVID-19, the path to ISO 45001 third-party certification, and how the ANSI/ASSP Z10 standard provides a framework for safety management systems. Attendees can also learn how to align systems to protect temporary workers.

Like all ASSP professional development opportunities, the safety management system event will deliver relevant information that attendees can immediately implement in their organizations. There will be virtual networking breaks between sessions, a live Q&A with industry experts, and an interactive virtual expo with the latest product innovations.

Participants will receive on-demand access for 30 days and earn up to 1.6 continuing education units (CEUs) to help maintain their professional certifications. Non-members will also receive a free one-year ASSP membership and a practice specialty membership of their choice.

Over the next several months, the SafetyFOCUS virtual education series will feature events on risk assessment and management on Oct. 20-21; industrial hygiene on Oct. 22; leadership and business skills in mid-November; human and organizational performance in mid-November; standards on Jan. 26; ergonomics on March 9; and training and education on March 10-11.
