Aug 13, 2019

As President of the American Society of Safety Professionals – South Florida Chapter (ASSP), allow me to introduce myself. My name is Bobby Glass and I’m currently the Director of Safety, Health, DOT and Environmental compliance for Centerline, Inc. based out of Palm City, Florida.  I’ve been an active member of ASSP since 1999 and have seen a lot of changes; however, the changes have been for the best and the entire ASSP community is striving. In addition, I’ve acted in various ASSP positions since 1999 and most recently Treasurer.

President’s Message – August 2018

Aug 10, 2018

Well, as the incoming President, I need to introduce myself to those of you I have not met yet.  My name is Dave Lockhart; I am the Director of Loss Control for Poole & Kent Company of Florida.  I have been in safety for 20 years.

This is an exciting time to be a member of such a great organization.  The name change to the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP), reflex’s our membership.  With that, it is important to know that we still have the great resources as we did in the past.

Any organization is only as good as its members and we are now different.  As we continue to grow it is important that we provide our membership with relevant topics and additional resources to help our members become strong safety leaders in our prospective rolls.

We need our members to become active members.  There are so many things you can do to help make us a stronger chapter. Participate in our monthly meetings is the first step.

Hope to see you there.

Dave Lockhart, President
South Florida Chapter of the American Society of Safety Professionals

Dear Member of the South Florida Chapter of ASSE,

I would like to first like to send well wishes to everyone recovering from Hurricane Irma and/or Maria. We here in South Florida were impacted a great deal. This is why we cancelled the September OSHA update meeting and rescheduled it for next Tuesday October 10th at BreakThru Beverage in Miramar.

Here are some things to be aware of that has happened recently:
