The ASSE (American Society of Safety Engineers) announces its fifth annual ASSE kids’ ‘Safety-on-the-Job’ poster contest. The contest, organized in five age categories, runs September 19, 2006 through February 14, 2007.
â€œChildren of ASSE members are not totally aware of how critical their parents’ work is when it comes to saving lives and reducing injuries worldwide,â€ ASSE President Donald S. Jones, Sr., CSP, P.E., said. â€œThis contest helps teach ASSE members’ children just how their parents, grandparents, aunts or uncles, work day in and day out to help the millions of people who go to work, return home safely every day. It is also educates them on workplace risks to take with them as they grow up and take that first job.â€
