ASSP Shifts SafetyFOCUS 2021 to Virtual Event

The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) is shifting its second-largest annual event to a live virtual experience early next year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. SafetyFOCUS 2021 will move from an eight-day in-person conference in Las Vegas to a 10-day online event that will be held February 8-12 and 15-19.

"We must continue to support occupational safety and health professionals who are helping their companies keep workers safe throughout the pandemic," said ASSP President Deborah Roy, M.P.H., RN, COHN-S, CSP, CIT, FASSP, FAAOHN. "Virtual platforms have proven to be a smart and successful education alternative while the future of in-person gatherings remains uncertain."

"SafetyFOCUS is a deep dive into safety education with industry leaders who help participants excel at protecting workers in all industries," said a spokesperson. ASSP's Live Virtual Classroom technology will enable SafetyFOCUS instructors to conduct courses in real time from wherever they are located. The courses will take place from 8 AM to 4:30 PM CT each day, providing all the benefits of face-to-face instruction without the travel time and hotel expenses.

Attendees simply need a computer with a camera, audio and internet access to participate.

"Instructors can see you and you can see them," Roy said. "It is an engaging experience that allows you to ask questions and interact with other virtual learners in real time. It is time well-spent to advance your career."

SafetyFOCUS 2021 offers workplace safety and health courses on a broad range of topics such as business skills and personal development, certification prep, construction, ergonomics, fall protection, risk assessment and management, safety management systems and training and education. Attendees also fulfill their continuing education unit (CEU) requirements while making lasting professional connections and absorbing relevant information they can immediately implement in their organizations.
