The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) is moving its annual conference to September and expects it to be a hybrid virtual/in-person event.
Safety 2021 had been scheduled for June in Denver.
After analyzing public health factors and projections, the ASSP decided to move its event to September, with exact dates and location to be announced, probably in March.
Safety 2021 will be a live in-person event with a virtual component. It will include an Expo with exhibitors showcasing their products and services.
Registration is expected to open in late Spring.
As usual, participants can earn continuing education units by attending.
The ASSP says its safety team is reviewing protocols for the in-person event, including contactless registration, physical distancing, face coverings, one-direction aisles, separate entrances and exits, and seating limits in meeting rooms.
If the pandemic doesn’t subside as expected, the virtual conference will be held even if the in-person event can’t.
