More Fun Than Run 5K | Tuesday, June 5 | 6:00PM start


After two days of sessions and meetings, break out by registering for the first ever, More Fun Than Run 5K, at the Tower of the Americas, right near the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, home of Safety 2018. Whether you want to race like an Olympian, hop like a bunny or skip like a kid, just have fun being part of this inaugural event which supports the ASSE Foundation’s Safety Matters Fund. In 6,758 steps, you will be making history and supporting a great cause.

Registration is $45 per person and includes a T-shirt, bib number, timing chip and a goodie bag.


NEW! Grab your lunch and choose how you want to spend it in one of four ways – on your own, the Sandbox, the Playground, or the Pitch for Safety.

Sandbox: Just want to eat and chill? Visit the Sandbox for a quiet retreat on the placid make-believe shores of Safety 2018.

Playground: Interested in chatting with other attendees about the issues that keep you up at night? Then grab your lunch and head over to the Playground. Here you’ll be able to talk over some pre-selected topics in a judgement-free zone. Eat, share your expertise, repeat.

Pitch: The eternal challenge in our profession is in refining our messages, making them actionable, and getting them heard over on the operations side of the fence. Part networking/part “hands on” workshop, you’ll get a chance to pitch your ideas to upper management – and get their candid feedback on how best to craft your message so it gets heard. At the Pitch, you’ll have the opportunity to do that live –  literally get into an elevator with a senior executive and pitch your idea for improving workplace safety. The Pitch is broken down into two parts:

Monday, Starting Pitch for Safety: Six senior safety leaders will mingle and listen to ideas for improving OSH in the workplaces – coaching you on how best to present your ideas to the C-Suite.

Tuesday, Final Pitch For Safety: It’s showtime! On day two, six “elevators” will be stationed in the lunch and learn area. Each elevator will have a senior operational executive inside. Step in and you’ll have two-minutes to present your idea and receive feedback – before the elevator stops.
