ASSP’s Premier Education Event for Safety Professionals

For more than 60 years, the ASSP Professional Development Conference (PDC) has been and will continue to be the direct reflection of what is taking place in the occupational, safety and health industry. Each year, safety professionals gather to learn from both experts in the field and each other.

Now known as Safety Conference and Expo, the annual event presents an unparalleled opportunity for education, networking and community.

  • Why? To bring innovation, education and connection to the safety profession, with the goal improving workplace safety

The Conference That’s By Safety Professionals, For Safety Professionals

Members of ASSP volunteer their time and expertise to evaluate every session that’s eligible for the program. The PDC Planning Committee is made up of safety professionals from a variety of industries and backgrounds who ensure that the sessions are relevant, structured and present a wide range of topics.

The Committee typically begins work on the conference more than a year in advance. They start by identifying key topics and themes that are relevant to the safety profession and surveying members to gather feedback on what they would like to see at the conference. Based on this feedback, the committee develops a program of educational sessions, keynote presentations and workshops that address the most important issues and trends in the field. Topics include safety compliance and regulations, risk assessment and management, fall protection, safety management systems, business and leadership, and worker well-being.

The PDC Planning Committee is a vital part of Safety Conference and Expo, and we appreciate their hard work and dedication.
