Message from the President – September 2020
Posted: Sep 11, 2020
Greetings ASSP Colleagues,
I hope this message finds you and yours doing well. I continue to look forward to the time when we may meet as an ASSP family, together as one, and in-person. Having said that, our online ASSP Chapter meetings got off to a very fine start last month. OSHA’s new Compliance Assistance Specialist, Francisco Garcia, visited with us during Safe & Sound Week to talk safety programs and give us an OSHA update. He’s a great guy and I think he’s going to be a welcome resource for Alabama companies. In these times, I think our businesses need all the help we can give them. For us, the ASSP family, we are challenged to be just that much better at what we do and how we serve the safety needs of others. We’re all stressed and strained to the max which, unfortunately, presents greater risks for serious injuries and illnesses.
This month, we will get back to holding our ASSP Chapter meetings on our normal meeting days – the third Friday of each month. On September 18th, please join us for an online (Zoom) ASSP Chapter meeting on the topic of fall protection, in observation of OSHA’s Fall Protection emphasis week. You should all be receiving an invitation to the meeting soon and I hope you’ll be able to attend.
Take care out there – of yourself and of others!
ASSP Alabama Chapter President
