ASSE President Mike Belcher and Safety India 2015 conference chair Suresh Tanwar.
As a lead up to its Safety India 2015 conference in Mumbai, ASSE hosted a press conference to discuss the growing need for OSH professionals across India, a need made even more critical by the explosive economic growth in the country. During the press conference, ASSE President Michael Belcher, CSP, noted that all economic signals point to great things for India, but added that sustaining such growth demands the adoption of OSH best practices. "Nowhere will safety professionals make a bigger difference in the lives of India’s 1.2 billion citizens than in bringing the country’s political, business and civic leaders together to ensure the country’s infrastructure, the explosive grow of its cities, manufacturing areas and housing--protect the workers who build them and the citizens who ultimately will use them," Belcher said.
