ASSE Safety 2015 Proceedings.
ASSE Safety 2014 Proceedings.
This paper/presentation examines the UK/EU experience of risk prevention through proactive design and management in the Construction industry. It reviews the recent changes in the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations, 2015 which fully come into force on 1st October, 2015. These new CDM Regulations now reflect best practice in the industry and highlight the required core competencies of all players, including designers/architects, clients, contractors/sub-contractors and site management teams.It also sets out the typical UK approach to contractor selection/approval and project management.
This fundamental presentation describes what is meant by risk. It also provides information to differentiate risk management from safety management. The risk management process is described and resources for risk management are identified.
The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) offers assistance to both safety professionals
and employers of safety professionals through its on-line resource the Body of Knowledge. This
powerful tool helps users identify best practices to better protect people, property, and the
environment. For professionals in the field seeking resources and guidance, the Body of Knowledge includes checklists, technical papers, presentation information, training material, and program outlines in a variety of formats including web links, Word documents, PDFs, PowerPoint slides, and videos.
The purpose of this research project was to better understand compensation trends among Safety, Health, and Environmental (SH&E) professionals. Since 2008, the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) has measured and reported salary and employment trend data as a service to its certificants and SH&E professionals. In 2015, BCSP hoped to develop a more complete SH&E employment trend and salary picture by inviting five partners to participate in the data collection process. Partners: ASSE - American Society of Safety Engineers; ABIH - American Board of Industrial Hygiene; AHMP - Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals;
AIHA - American Industrial Hygiene Association; and IHMM - Institute of Hazardous Materials Management.
A 2015 American Society of Safety Engineers survey of more than 9,000 occupational safety and health professionals reveals they earn an annual base salary on average of $98,000, an increase of $8,000 since the survey was taken two years ago.
The ASSE survey results are part of an expansive collaboration with the American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH), Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals (AHMP), American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) and Institute of Hazardous Materials Management (IHMM).

The NIOSH Center for Workers’ Compensation Studies (CWCS) is making progress to support the use of workers’ compensation (WC) data and systems to improve workplace safety and health. Recently, CWCS announced funding support for new state trending of WC data and has continued work with the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) on claims analyses and intervention effectiveness studies. Over the past year, the center has held several webinars on a number of topics ranging from WC data dashboards to opioid abuse prevention, and it continues to seek new partners and input for future research.
According to the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) Engineering and Safety
Service (E&S) report CV-15-08, “The evaluation of a commercial auto exposure for a motor
carrier is uniquely different from that of other insurance exposures.” This is true for a number of reasons. Perhaps the most pertinent of which is that the job site where a safety or loss control professional could make direct observation of conditions and performance is unique to each employee-
driver, and is literally on the move daily. The dynamic exposure presented by other drivers on the highway is highly unpredictable and seemingly uncontrollable.
Process safety and personal safety need not be treated as entirely separated domains of safety risk management. Although specific consequences and controls may vary enough to identify and label them as various categories of risk, the risk management systems approach needs to be universal, consistent and integrated. Positive arguments for an integrated SMS are presented.
The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
