President’s Message – April 2019

Fellow ASSP Delmarva Chapter Members;

I am pleased to announce that our Delmarva board members have finished final build-out of the approved USCG “MARAD small vessel for limited public use” (AKA Delmarva Chapter Ark), we’re still waiting for final approval from the EPA on our port-a-potty discharge permit and the engineer’s stamp for the hoist system/fall arrest system/trebuchet for our “cargo loading”.  See if this dang insistent rain will stop our group!

As we move toward the last few months of our 2019 ASSP fiscal year, we have three key activities we have planned:

March 26th at 0800  we will be hosting a joint technical presentation with the local Eastern Shore SHRM chapter – professional human resources management organization with the jointly presented topic of “OSHA Inspection and Regulatory Compliance from the Human Resources and Occupational Safety Perspectives”. Dove Pointe Banquet Room – 1225 Mount Hermon Road Salisbury MD

President’s Message – December 2017

Happy Holidays to you and yours!!!

This season of our year is a time of high expectations, anticipation and most of all transition!!! As a safety professional, transition means that we’re seeing the predominant hazards move to STF because of associates rushing to get out of the cold with ice/snow and black ice from sudden temperature changes thrown in for good measure. We also begin to see challenges with associate’s tight muscles from cold weather causing strains and overexertion if not properly warmed up before beginning their tasks.
