Mr. Beaujon is well known in the safety community for his expertise in cranes and derricks and for his overall professionalism and integrity, qualities that will serve to represent the interests of the public and the safety profession on C-DAC.
ASSE, with over 30,000 members, is the oldest and largest professional safety association. The Society has been committed to the workplace protection of people, property and the environment since 1911. This commitment includes helping ensure that the decisions made by federal safety agencies like OSHA involve the wealth of expertise and experience readily available from leaders in the safety profession. Mr. Beaujon is such an individual. A review of his credentials will demonstrate why he warrants consideration for C-DAC membership.
