President’s Message – July 2018

Jul 10, 2018

Greetings Fellow Safety Professionals:

This summer is well underway!  Just like the seasons, change is constant.  As the Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) profession is always evolving, so is our 100+ year old organization.  The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) is now the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP).  This change became official at the annual Professional Development Conference in San Antonio last month.

The South Texas Chapter will continue the rich history to influence the future of safety.  We work hard to advance the profession and the individuals who choose it by supporting their efforts to prevent workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities.

Come join us at our July 16 chapter meeting.  Our guest speaker will be Chief Patrick Zepeda with the City of San Antonio, Office of Emergency Management.  Chief Zepeda will discuss emergency preparedness with special emphasis on the 2018 hurricane season.

Have a safe summer,

Damon Shodrock, CSP
President, South Texas Chapter
American Society of Safety Professionals
