Dear ASSP Colleagues,
I think of October as the official kickoff month of the holiday season. Fall may not be in the air just yet (another record high temperature expected today), but eventually our weather will change. This is as good a time as any to remind our friends and families about the importance of safety at home. Time to start checking out those heating systems, fireplaces/chimneys, and home smoke/fire alarm systems for when the temps do drop down in the overnight hours. Seasonal recreational activities such as going out to ballgames, making sporting trips, enjoying Halloween festivities, etc – all have unique safety considerations. These are important conversations and preparations we need to teach and put into practice.
As always, thank you for all you do to keep others safe at work and at home. And please mark your calendars for our next Chapter meeting on October 18th at the AGC. We’ll see you then!
Matt Hollub, CIH, CSP
President, ASSP Alabama Chapter
