This webinar is a high-level overview of serious injury and fatality exposures.

This  webinar is presented in collaboration with the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP), an organization dedicated to advancing the occupational safety and health profession. Grainger is proud to be a key ASSP stakeholder and to engage with ASSP to discuss the serious injuries and fatalities problem and what can be done about it.

We would like to thank the Board of Certified Safety Professionals and their Foundation, not only for promoting this webinar, but also for what they do to drive certification and education initiatives for all.  For those who have been in the occupational safety and health profession for some time, for those who have recently entered the field and for those students working to obtain their degree(s).Speakers
