ASSE Has New Program for Executive Safety Management

The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) will debut this fall an educational program titled the Executive Program in Safety Management.

The program is designed for experienced safety professionals to maximize their safety program performance as the role of safety management expands to meet the demands of today from corporate security and crisis management to environmental exposures.

The program seminars will be Nov. 20-23 in Las Vegas, Nev., and Jan. 27-Feb. 3 in Orlando, Fla.

The certificate from the Executive Program signifies advanced understanding of safety management from the ASSE Professional Academy and is certified by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training. To earn the certificate, individuals must take three executive program courses plus 2.6 additional continued education units electives.

The two-day seminar "Delivering a High-Performance Safety Management System" focuses on assessing the effectiveness of a program and how to gain recognition for it.
