ASSP Professional Development Conference & Exposition, Safety 2018, offers a variety of learning opportunities everywhere!


Come in early and get a jump start on your professional development through pre-conference courses.

General Sessions

Learn to be a maverick, embrace the future, and unlock your inner superhero at one of our inspiring general sessions. Be sure not to miss the rematch to last year’s history-making, Plenary Town Hall Debate, with Tom Krause, Scott Geller, and Todd Conklin. This time around, our panelists, joined by senior executives, will dive into the topic of serious injury and fatality prevention and discuss if they’re related more strongly to employee behavior, or to workplace systems.

Concurrent Sessions

Select from over 240 concurrent educational sessions, the heart of the conference.

Flash Sessions

Taking place on Monday and Tuesday, our Flash Sessions are bits of learning delivered in high-energy, 15-minute bursts.

Key Issue Collaboration Sessions

Sometimes, the best education is gather from the collection of people in the room. Let your safety knowledge shine in a Key Issue Collaboration Session.

Social Learning Stations

Network, learn, and engage with other attendees at our Social Learning Stations. Have a story to tell? Some tips to share? Just want to meet some new people in a relaxed learning environment? Then the social learning stations are for you.

Post-Conference Courses

Keep the learning going by staying a little longer to complete a certification preparation course or an ASSP certificate program on Risk Assessment, 45001, or Managed Fall protection.
