Media Advisory: Journalists invited to Safety 2017 in Denver


WHAT:  ASSE’s Safety 2017 Professional Development Conference & Exposition, a global safety event with people from more than 40 countries participating as presenters, exhibitors and attendees.

WHERE:  Colorado Convention Center, 700 14th Street in downtown Denver. The most common entrance is off 14th Street between Stout and California streets.

WHEN:  Monday, June 19, to Thursday, June 22.

WHY:  The American Society of Safety Engineers holds an annual conference attended by more than 4,000 safety professionals who learn about a wide range of best practices and the latest product innovations in the occupational safety and health field. The event generates many stories and photo/video opportunities for journalists, who connect with industry experts and secure sources for their safety and health articles year-round.

HOW:  Press members are encouraged to register for free by contacting Blaine Krage in Media Relations at the American Society of Safety Engineers. He can be reached at bkrage@asse.org or 847.768.3416. On-site, Blaine can help reporters connect with any speaker, executive or safety expert related to the topics that most interest them. Reporters receive complimentary lunches on Tuesday and Wednesday of the event in the Exhibit Hall.

MORE INFO:  Journalists can get a flavor of the big week and see everything the conference has to offer in the event brochure that can be downloaded from the Safety 2017 web page at http://safety.asse.org/. A few of the top safety presenters that reporters may recognize include Ed Foulke, Tom Krause and Shawn Galloway.

A spirited Plenary Session (town hall-style) with some of the biggest names in safety will focus on popular yet controversial Behavior Based Safety in order to understand the human side of safety performance improvement in this time of political transition and de-regulation (topic changed from printed brochure).

An Executive Summit will feature senior executives from influential companies discussing the importance of workplace safety, and how safety professionals can overcome obstacles and be most effective.

ASSE leadership will shift gears as President Tom Cecich wraps up his one-year term, and Jim Smith steps in to lead the world’s oldest professional safety organization in 2017-18.

ASSE will honor its Safety Professional of the Year and Outstanding Safety Educator of the Year; present the Award for Innovation in Occupational Safety Management; and bestow its highest distinction of Fellow on an exceptional leader in the occupational safety and health profession.

ASSE’s House of Delegates will vote on new branding proposals as the society considers a name and logo change.
