Print Article Contributed by FSM Staff

PARK RIDGE, IL -- Safety professionals must act fast to save on registration for one of the nation’s premier occupational safety and health (OSH) education events. The American Society of Safety Engineers will end regular registration for SeminarFest 2018 on Monday, Jan. 22.

Higher fees will apply to late registrants of the immersive learning experience held Feb. 1-8 at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Many OSH professionals take significant steps in their careers each year because of SeminarFest, which empowers them to dig deeper, achieve their professional development goals, and engage in a vibrant community of their peers. More than 900 attendees have already registered for this year’s event. Total attendance is expected to surpass 1,100.

SeminarFest 2018 will enable professionals to take a focused approach to OSH education, developing skills and knowledge they can immediately apply on the job to help reduce workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities. The event features more than 90 courses from 40 expert facilitators, covering the industry’s most relevant topics in 10 tracks. The full-day course format allows attendees to gain in-depth knowledge on a specific topic, which is a different approach than typical conferences where people jump between shorter presentations.

“Our educational philosophy is that learning should be immersive, engaging and relevant to what you’re doing in the workplace today,” said Aleese Eckenrode, ASSE’s manager of education and program development. “You can bring back the newest ideas and approaches within the safety field and emerge as a leader in your organization.”

Attendees have the opportunity to interact face-to-face with hundreds of safety professionals while building a network of contacts who share their passion for tackling safety and health challenges. The weeklong program inspires attendees to effect change in their workplaces, and prepares them to deliver results. SeminarFest 2018 will offer several new courses, including:

●  Preparing for the new safety management specialist (SMS) certification;
●  Training a risk assessment team;
●  Understanding human and organizational performance;
●  Transitioning from project manager to project leader;
●  Creating business continuity plans;
●  Facilitating participatory decision making.

SeminarFest 2018 will offer six certificate programs, including the new Managed Fall Protection Certificate Program, to help safety professionals advance their careers and receive recognition for their expertise. Attendees can also earn up to 5.6 continuing education units (CEUs) across the full eight-day program, and prepare for certification exams that lead to industry-preferred designations such as CSP, ASP, CHST and the new SMS.
