The North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week is a continent-wide event spanning the countries of Canada, USA, and Mexico. The goal during the North American Occupational Safety & Health (NAOSH) Week is to focus the attention of employers, employees, partners, and the public on the importance of preventing injury and illness in the workplace, at home, and in the community.

As the ASSP Hawkeye Chapter, we strive to:

  • Increase understanding of the benefits of investment in occupational health and safety.
  • Raise awareness of the role and contribution of safety and health professionals.
  • Reduce workplace injuries and illness by encouraging new health and safety activities and interest in NAOSH Week.

Seminarfest 2019 Was A Great Success!

Posted: Feb 03, 2019

Several Hawkeye Chapter members escaped bitterly cold January temperatures…

by attending the ASSP Seminarfest in Las Vegas, Nevada.

There were multiple opportunities to participate in Speed Networking…

And there were evening networking events…

But the best part of the Seminarfest week was the great assortment of well-planned ASSP educational courses that ranged in length from 1/2 day to 3 days long.

These allowed participants to gain a detailed understanding of the subjects being covered, and to work through case studies in small groups.

After the day’s classroom time was concluded, participants found many exciting attractions to see in the Las Vegas area…

We sure hope you can make it out to Seminarfest 2020!
