Posted in on Fri, Sep 26, 2008

Des Plaines, IL (September 26, 2008) — The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) congratulates the ASSE members, including ASSE President Warren K. Brown, CSP, ARM, and former ASSE President James “Skipper” Kendrick, Jr., CSP, recognized this week as being among the 50 most influential safety, health and environmental leaders by the redesigned Occupational Hazards magazine now known as “EHS Today”.

The list was developed by the editors of Occupational Hazards (OH) magazine who selected the people they believe have had the most impact on safety, health and the environment in the past decade. The list includes government appointees, academics, union EHS leaders, legislators, company-based EHS professionals, the presidents of professional associations, safety industry leaders, safety “gurus” and worker advocates. As noted by the magazine – “They all have one thing in common: Through their work, their mentoring, their lecturing, their lawmaking, their research, their administration or their advocacy, they have had a strong and lasting impact on EHS in the workplace.”

The following are the listings from the magazine’s “The 50 Most Influential EHS Leaders” for Brown and Kendrick:

Under Association Presidents — Warren K. Brown, CSP, ARM, is president of the American Society of Safety Engineers. During the 30 years he has been a member of ASSE, Brown has served on several key committees and as the vice president for the council charged with developing and implementing professional development programs countrywide.
