2018 Corporate Safety Award Program
Posted - May 03, 2018

(Submission Deadline is June 1, 2018)

The Northern Virginia Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers is accepting applications for its 2018 Corporate Safety Award Program. This award recognizes companies or government agencies who have demonstrated a commitment to employee health & safety.  To qualify applicants must have achieved an OSHA DART (Days Away From Work, Job Restriction or Job Transfer) Incidence Rate below the national average for their company’s/agency’s North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code.

The DART Incidence Rate Calculator and Comparison Tool are available through the Bureau of Labor Statistics at http://data.bls.gov/IIRC/.

To obtain a DART rate using the Incidence Rate Calculator, you will need to enter the number of hours actually worked by all employees at your company/agency, the number of cases involving days away from work only and the number of cases involving job transfer or restricted work activity only, then select the most current year and an Area, Supersector, and Industry that best represents your company.

Qualifying applicants will be recognized and a certificate will be awarded at the Awards & Honors Social in June.

Proposed Amendments to Chapter Bylaws
Posted - Jan 02, 2018

This past August, ASSE members made the historic decision to change the organization’s name to the American Society of Safety Professionals.

ASSE members voted to amend Society bylaws to reflect the new name. As a separately incorporated entity, our chapter needs to hold a separate chapter member vote to change the name in our bylaws, as well.

To learn more about these proposed changes:

We will hold a member vote on these proposed changes at an upcoming meeting of the chapter.
