Safety 2017 Update

Posted: Jun 29, 2017

Over 5000 safety and health professionals attended Safety 2017 in Denver – record-breaking attendance and exposition.  Over 600 members from Region V attended the PDC – many of whom were speaking on such diverse topics as “Improving General Industry Qualitative Risk Assessments Using LOPA Concepts”, “Human Error: There is NO Root Cause”, and “Highlights of the Newly Released ASSE/ANSI Z244.1 Lockout/Tagout Standard”.  We also learned about “airdrop” for sharing photos and videos.

There was a lively debate at the House of Delegates as we discussed and voted on a dues increase (passed – $10 a year increase over 3 years), a name change (check your inbox to vote on the change to American Society of Safety Professionals), and a logo change (did not pass – but current logo would need to reflect name change should that pass the membership vote).

It was an opportunity to reconnect with friends and make new ones – even those from around the world.

We heard about the power of “5-4-3-2-1”, change management, whether or not BBS is actually dead, and the “7 C’s of Success”.  If you attended – make a plan to share the information you learned with others in your organization to help move safety in your organization forward.
