The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) has opened registration for its signature safety education event, held two months later than usual this year. The Safety 2024 Professional Development Conference and Exposition is set for Wednesday, Aug. 7, to Friday, Aug. 9, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.
Safety 2024 offers workplace safety and health professionals a vast networking experience while highlighting best practices, industry trends and the latest product innovations. More than 200 continuing education sessions will provide practical information that safety professionals can immediately put to use at their organizations.
“Our conference and expo is a dynamic learning and networking experience that supports our mission to help protect workers in every industry worldwide,” said ASSP President Jim Thornton, CSP, CIH, FASSP, FAIHA. “It’s a place to find real solutions to occupational safety and health challenges, especially now when environments can quickly change. We’re excited about the experience we have in store for attendees.”
Thousands of safety and health professionals look to ASSP’s annual conference – now in its 63rd year – to advance their careers and interact with experts who will share proven techniques for elevating safety at their companies. Attendees will also be inspired, entertained and informed by popular general sessions.
As a focal point of the event, the exposition will feature more than 500 exhibitors showcasing innovative safety solutions that can help organizations eliminate hazards and risks that cause injuries, illnesses and fatalities. The expo floor will include an expanded Career Advancement Center that will serve all attendees, not just those looking for a new position.
“Our expo is so illuminating and engaging that safety and health professionals find it just as educational as the sessions,” Thornton said. “Many vendors also bring their product developers and present meaningful learning opportunities.”
Safety professionals can earn 1.5 continuing education units (CEUs) for career advancement. Register online to get the discounted early rate through March 21. Groups from the same company can save by contacting ASSP’s Nancy O’Toole at 847.768.3466 or email@example.com. ASSP also offers an expo-only pass.
“If your job involves the safety and health of your organization, Safety 2024 is the place to gain critical insights and knowledge to advance your work environment,” said Stephanie Gurnari, CSP, chair of ASSP’s Professional Development Conference Planning Committee. “It’s a comprehensive experience that provides significant value for occupational safety and health professionals at every level of experience.”
Denver is one of the most popular locations for ASSP’s event. The pedestrian-friendly Mile High City is known for its natural beauty with more than 200 city parks and views of the Rocky Mountains. There are trendy restaurants and cafes, a thriving arts scene and countless outdoor activities, such as kayaking on the river that runs through downtown. At the State Capitol, the 13th step is exactly 5,280 feet above sea level.
