Frequently Asked Questions

What’s Safety 2009 and the PDC and what’s a PDC?

Safety 2009 is ASSE’s weeklong event, which includes the Professional Development Conference (PDC) and Exposition and advance, pre and post conference seminars. You can decide to attend the entire event, or just the PDC, or just a pre or post conference seminars.

The PDC is the Professional Development Conference and Exposition, which includes the opening reception in the exhibit hall, full access to the exhibits, all general and plenary sessions, all educational sessions offered Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and the luncheons on Monday and Tuesday. The advance, pre and post conference seminars and the Thursday lunch are for an additional price.

What is the ASSE Service Center?

It is a designated area outside the exhibit hall for one-stop shopping for all your professional needs. ASSE staff is available to answer any question you have:

What is the NexSteps© Career Center?

It is ASSE’s job placement center where job seekers go to post resumes or view postings by companies seeking to hire a safety, health and/or environmental professional. Employers post positions and browse through resumes to seek potential employees. During the week of Safety 2009, ASSE allows jobs to be posted at no charge!
