International Conference on Workplace Safety Held in Saudi Arabia

The president of American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE), Daryl Hill, took part in an international assembly of occupational health and safety professionals in Saudi Arabia Monday and Tuesday, according to WorkersCompensation.com. Hill met with many ASSE members and conducted a presentation on contactor safety management.

The meeting was sponsored by Saudi Aramco and was entitled, “A safer you, a safer me.” It featured presentations from contractor-safety experts from all over the globe, including IOSH president Steve Granger, ARAMCO senior vice president Abdulrahman Al-Wuhaib, and NEBOSH chief executive Teresa Budworth.

ASSE is the oldest professional safety organization. It was founded in 1911 and has more than 30,000 members. In November, several ASSE members met with Chinese authorities from the State Administration of Work Safety and China Occupational Safety and Health Association.

International dialogue like this is an opportunity to gain new approaches to and strategies for occupational health and safety. Unfortunately, in Massachusetts and elsewhere, workers continue to be hurt on the job on a regular basis. If you have been injured at work, call a Massachusetts workers’ compensation attorney today.
