New Attendee

This is your chance to learn, share ideas and build a network with an impressive group of safety professionals. Here are a few ways to make the most of your time at Safety Focus 2020:

  1. Create an Education Plan: Use our scheduling tools to find the right courses to meet your organizations strategic goals. Consider earning an ASSP Certificate to build your professional credibility or take specialized course to round out your knowledge and expertise.
  2. Know your Schedule: Log into your ASSP My Learning Account and read through the details of each course before you arrive at the event. Check dates and times! Each course is unique and will require specific requirements.
  3. Enjoy the Extras: From free lunch every day to Networking receptions - Check out our schedule of activities (link to Networking page) to make the most of you time in Vegas.
  4. Get Uncomfortable: No, it’s not a typo – we encourage new attendees to step outside their box to ask questions, connect with peers and engage fully in the course content. Safety Focus is a safe space to grow and develop personally and professionally.
  5. Discover your Tribe: Safety Professionals often work in silos with limited access to their peers who have the same challenges and nuances in their day to day. With a variety of tracks and courses offered this event is a great way to connect with individuals who you can vent about issues and find solutions! Check out our Practice Specialty and Common Interest Group booths to find your community.
  6. Visit the Marketplace: Stop by and discover the latest technical publications and standards in the safety industry. Plus, our ASSP Gear can make a great souvenir for colleagues, friends and family!
  7. Immersive Education Tips: Sitting in a classroom for 8 hours a day can be exhausting both physically and mentally. Here are 5 insider tips on making it through an entire week of safety training:
    • Take breaks as needed throughout the day – venture outside if you have time to soak in some Vitamin D and revitalize your spirit.
    • Bring a water bottle to stay hydrated and focused.
    • Pack a warm layer of clothing to combat the cold interior temperatures.
    • Carry business cards for networking opportunities throughout the week.
    • Don’t forget your phone and laptop chargers!
