On Thursday, August 15th, the three Michigan ASSP Chapters, West Michigan, Mid-Michigan, and the Greater Detroit Chapters renewed their joint Alliance with Michigan-OSHA. This third renewal of the ASSP/MI-OSHA Alliance will mark 10 years of working together to achieve the goals set forth in the Alliance. We were very happy to have Nella Davis-Ray, Director of MI-OSHA Consultation, Education and Training Division, join us for the signing.
As Alliance partners, the three ASSP Chapters work to increase the safety of Michigan’s workers. In part, this is done by raising awareness of MI-OSHA’s rulemaking and enforcement initiatives across Michigan. ASSP Chapters share information with all ASSP members in the geographic areas supported by the three Michigan Chapters on OSHA’s National Emphasis Programs, MI-OSHA State Emphasis Programs, local and national Regulatory Agendas, and opportunities that exist for Michigan ASSP members to participate in the rulemaking process.
Donors can establish a named academic scholarship or professional education grant fund through the ASSP Foundation. Scholarships and grants advance the safety profession and provide national recognition for the donor. The Foundation manages the administrative details of this program and works with the donor to provide qualified award recipients each year.
The WISE Mentoring program successfully connects today’s most talented and experienced women mentors with rising and aspiring mentees.
