An ASSE Virtual Symposium

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly 12 million people are employed in the manufacturing sector.  And with a resurgence in manufacturing, that number is growing.

With that resurgence comes an increased need for safety professionals to ramp up their skills around the unique safety issues that can be found in a manufacturing setting. These may run the gamut from grinding machine injuries or injuries related to other types of production tools, all the way to less obvious injury types like lifting hazards or slips, trips and falls.

As a safety professional tasked with managing safety in any type of manufacturing environment, ASSE’s latest Virtual Symposium is for you.  With expert speakers from the manufacturing sector, this virtual event takes place online March 25th - 27th. No need to travel away from home to take part in an enriching learning experience. Best yet, all of the live sessions are also recorded. So if you can’t make all the sessions live, you’ll still have the chance to watch the recordings whenever it’s convenient to you.
