PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Greetings National Capital Chapter Members,

Winter weather is officially here!  I hope that, if you did venture out onto the roads this week, your journey was free of incident.  Nevertheless, please continue to communicate with your employees, clients, friends, and family on the hazards and risks associated with driving in adverse weather conditions.  Remember that driving fatalities account for more than 30% of occupational deaths, and we as safety professionals must do everything we can to keep people safe on the roads.

Thank you to Adele Abrams for delivering a great discussion on marijuana and opiates in the workplace at our November meeting.  Folks who were able to attend received great content on this topic from one of our most prominent members, and we have summarized some of the key points from the meeting in the links below.

As we get ready to close out 2018, we are looking forward to our talk with Past-President and SMACNA Director for Market Sectors, Mike McCullion, on Prevention through Design in Construction:  A Building Life Cycle Approach.  Our meeting will be on December 18 at 3:30pm in the Miller and Long Corporate Education Center in Bethesda, MD.  Please be sure to register using the link below.  Remember, we have made an effort to make every meeting FREE to membership this year, so please take advantage of these opportunities.

We look forward to seeing you in December, and as always we welcome your feedback.  Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.

Have a great weekend, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Matt Law, MPH, ASP, CSP, QSSP, REHS/RS

National Capital Chapter President
