As “Mission NAOSH 2010: Safe Workplaces” suggests, ASSE and its 32,000 occupational safety, health and environmental (SH&E) professional members continue to lead pioneering efforts in work safety for businesses, workers and communities. North American Occupational Safety and Health Week (May 2-8, 2010) and Occupational Safety and Health Professional Day (May5, 2010) help us reach millions of people on the importance and long-term benefits of workplace safety and health.

Tarheel Chapter Presentation of Award to Caleb Bush

NAOSH Week occurs every year during the first full week of May and is aimed at raising awareness about occupational safety, health and the environment and the SH&E profession. The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) joined with the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering (CSSE) to increase awareness in North America during NAOSH Week. This is one tool the almost 100-year-old ASSE and its 32,000 SH&E members use throughout the year to promote occupational safety aimed at preventing injuries and illnesses. Several organizations representing thousands of businesses have partnered with ASSE and CSSE to support NAOSH Week, including U.S. federal agencies such as the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

During NAOSH Week, ASSE and CSSE members, OSHA and NAOSH partners develop and implement activities throughout North America and worldwide (such as Kuwait, Colombia and Ecuador) to promote NAOSH Week. ASSE members have held fleet safety classes, ergonomic awareness events, distributed catastrophe preparedness information, provided teen worker safety programs, held city worker safety fairs,  held symposiums, assisted charities, held  personal protective equipment (PPE) fashion shows, donated PPE and much more.

ASSE also sponsors its annual kids “Safety-on-the-Job” poster contest for ASSE members’ children, brothers and sisters, grandchildren, nieces and nephews and chapter-sponsored schools. [1] Members can sponsor other children such as their co-workers’ children or friends.  The contest runs from September 19, 2009 – February 14, 2010 (Valentine’s Day). The poster contest for kids aged 5-14  aims to teach youth about the importance of work safety and what SH&E professionals do 24/7 to keep workers safe – to make sure they leave work injury and illness free returning home safely. The contest prizes are awarded to children who best illustrate safety at work in their poster. Contest winners, participants, and their families are honored at events in Washington, D.C. during NAOSH Week at the U.S. Department of Labor, the Smithsonian and the U.S. Capitol. Each age group’s winning poster is featured on the 2010 NAOSH poster distributed worldwide. Posters are also displayed at the annual ASSE Professional Development Conference and Exhibition in June.
