The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) has extended the application deadline for speakers at its Safety 2022 Professional Development Conference and Exposition. Occupational safety and health experts have until Oct. 15 to submit their proposals to contribute to next year’s event.

Safety 2022 will be held June 27-29 in Chicago as a hybrid experience that will feature online and in-person components, mirroring the Safety 2021 conference that recently concluded in Austin, Texas. Proposed presentations should address key occupational safety and health issues as well as emerging matters relevant to the profession.

All speaker proposals for Safety 2022 will be reviewed by ASSP’s Conference Planning Committee. The applications are evaluated on the speaker’s presentation skills and experience, desirability of the topic and alignment with conference objectives. No more than two proposals from one speaker will be considered.

Successful applicants will be notified by Feb. 25, 2022.

With a global membership of 36,000 professionals covering all industries, ASSP advances the safety profession through education, advocacy, standards and a professional community
