President’s Message – April 2020

It seems to me our roles in support of our company’s worker safety culture are increasingly a “journey” rather than a “destination”.  I was thinking about it this weekend and suddenly had a flashback to my Sophomore high school English class of all things!  My teacher, David Senecal, is likely sitting up in his grave saying – “I told you this was important!!!”  I liken our “safety journey” as a direct retelling of the classic late middle age saga – The Canterbury Tales published in 1400 by Geoffrey Chaucer, where a group of 30 pilgrims traveled the 60 miles from London to the St Thomas Becket shrine at Canterbury Cathedral over a week-and-a-half period.  They were a motley mix of all levels of society and trades – Knights, Lawyers, Millers, Reeves, Cooks, Merchants, Monks, Nuns, Physicians, Seamen and even some unescorted Women; quite radical for that time!  They decided to have a contest in telling the best story, as judged by the Tabard innkeeper who joins the group, with the winner receiving a free dinner at the Tabard Inn, the de rigueur restaurant of the time, when they returned to London.

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
