The meeting kicks off on November 29, with product group meetings, focusing on standards development, advocating for the growth of the safety equipment industry, and increasing the reach of the association. At the association’s annual Award Dinner, ISEA will honor Daniel K. Shipp, who honorably led the association for 25 years, with the Robert B. Hurley Distinguished Service Award.

There’s extra news to cover at the Annual Business Meeting and Speaker Sessions on November 30:  ISEA’s new President, Charles D.

Bergeson, Managing Partner of Bergeson & Campbell, P.C., will discuss exploring Cal Prop 65 exemption for personal protective equipment (PPE) manufacturers, and Jonathan Karl returns with an insider’s view on Washington D.C.

Dr. John Howard, director of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) will speak to the group, and OSHA has been invited.  These agency leaders will discuss new developments within the agencies, and where federal safety standards are heading.

 The topics are exceptionally timely and offer attendees a tremendous range of information.
