Why do organizations undertake safety efforts? And how does membership in ASSP bring value to me?  This presentation will explore organizational motivations for safety, discuss “business” considerations in decision-making, and share examples of aligning organizational techniques to integrate safety without compromising your safety values.  We will also explore the various ways members can avail themselves of the professional development and networking opportunities ASSP provides in building toward success.  We will share what Region 1 does to support that effort and discuss why we join as members and what we value from ASSP.

 The presentation will discuss:

  • Motivations: for safety in our organizations: why do they do it
  • Examples: Shared experiences in overcoming barriers that leads to safety integration
  • Society: Importance of your membership in ASSP and how that helps you succeed

 

Attendees will walk away with shared examples they can build upon for continued success, a better understanding of the Region does for them, and how they can get more from their membership and volunteerism.
