Safety Conference Brings 100 Professionals to CWU

More than 100 safety and health professionals from throughout Washington gathered last week at CWU for continuing education in occupational medicine, disease and infection control, fall protection, and oxygen and gas safety, among other subjects.

The day of professional development was the second annual Puget Sound American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) conference hosted by CWU’s Safety and Health Management Program.

The conference also featured keynote speakers Marcus Mann, a team trainer and performance coach for the financial sector; Larry Wilson, author and vice president of SafeStart; and Kristi Richards, two-time Olympian and world champion skier. Safety industry vendors showcased their products throughout the day.

Ellensburg is an ideal place to for the conference as industry professionals often have to travel to the Seattle area to get similar training. Most of the professionals at this year’s gathering are CWU graduates. Following the conference, safety alumni were invited to stick around for a dinner and meet and greet.
