Platform Statement

There has been a lot of good work by great people to get the Society to the current state. We want to continue to provide the best experience for Society members and encourage professional development and future leaders. To accomplish this goal requires board members with a vision for the future and a desire to develop our members and future leaders.

I am a strong proponent for the Society to have a greater global presence. We should continue on the course the Society has embarked to support and develop professionals from around the world and to share best practices globally.

My focus in my work and volunteer life is to fill the pipeline of Safety Professionals for the future. Indications are there will be a large number of our colleagues leaving the profession over the next decade. Those projections cannot be filled through the traditional university graduates. With the greater opportunity for quality, accredited education through distance learning programs, we can look at alternatives pathways to the profession.

With the current reductions impacting the US military, there are a large number of highly skilled individuals leaving the military that would transition from protecting our nation to protecting the workforce with technical safety education. Similarly, there are numbers of skilled craftsmen that could transition along the same path. The Society should encourage and support these opportunities.

The Society also needs to be a leader in finding opportunities to improve our efficiency and effectiveness through the use of emerging technologies. Recent programs have demonstrated those anticipated benefits and provided a business case for their utilization.

My platform, in summary, would support growth for excellence in service to membership, implement new governance, encourage greater global presence, fill the pipeline, develop our young professionals and demonstrate the value of new technologies.
