Your chapter was 1 of 6 chapters receiving an award this year.
Lesli Johnson and Karen LaRue presented the awards at the ASSE PDC – WISE Networking Event. We presented one award for the team and provided certificates to each of the primary Chapter WISE team members who make everything happen for your chapter. Attached are the photos from the networking event and the PPT shared with ASSP for their e-newsletter.
Thank-you for your support Lesli and Karen!
In order to honor those who have suffered and died on the job and to renew our efforts for safe workplaces, Melissa Schmaltz has written this short poem.
To remember in a day
All the workers gone away
All the mothers, all the fathers,
All of those who came before us.
It is too much.
It is all wrong.
It is a crutch.
It takes too long.
It doesn’t do to just remember,
To look back and sigh and simmer…
Instead, we could stand up and fight,
And knowledge in others we could ignite.
Protect yourself and those around you
From being a story of what NOT to do.
Stop our friends, our families, and our loved ones
From being a memory, even a treasured one.
