Message from The President – December 2019

Posted: Dec 08, 2019

Season’s Greetings!

It’s that time of year where we give thanks for all the goodness and blessings that have come our way.  We all celebrate the season in our own ways – with friends, with family, with reverence and grateful hearts, and with the hope for better days ahead.  This time of year also comes with a myriad of distractions and challenges for so many of us.  That’s why it becomes all the more important for us to maintain our focus on working safely and helping others to get through their workdays without injury.  So maybe this would be a good time to take a moment and check in on our employees and colleagues – perhaps giving a bit of added attention to those who may be struggling.

Message From The President – November, 2019

Posted: Nov 08, 2019

Dear ASSP Colleagues,

For most of us, safety is more than just a job that we go to each working day. If we hold safety as a value that affects how we think and act, we become 24/7 ambassadors for a better way to work and live. With that, we are also challenged to set positive examples we hope others will follow. Which brings me to Danny Callies who, along with George Pierce (retired, Alabama ABC), has been reaching out employers and organizations to raise awareness of workplace safety and health rights in general industry, construction, and mining. “If you see something, say something”, is their message.

Message from The President – October, 2019

Posted: Oct 08, 2019


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!
