and education in the occupational safety, health and environmental (SH&E)
field, Grand Rapids, MI – based Summit Training Source, Inc. has contributed
$5,000 to the American Society of Safety Engineers Foundation (ASSEF). This

ASSEF programs which include college scholarships, research funding and
professional development grants.

In addition to their donations, Summit has also been a
major sponsor of the annual ASSE Foundation Golf Outing, which is held in
conjunction with the American Society of Safety Engineers’ (ASSE) annual
Professional Development Conference (PDC) and exhibition to support ASSEF
scholarship programs.

“Summit Training continues to be a leader in the support and
growth of the ASSE Foundation through scholarship donations, serving on our
board and support of our annual golf tournament,” said ASSEF Chair Eddie Greer,

make a difference in the lives of students and safety professionals. And with
the recent National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) report
