ISC Safety Conference, May 2006

    ISC Board member Mike Connors, OSHA Region 5 Administrator, gave the kick-off address at the ISC May 2006 Safety Conference. Mr. Connors praised the ISC's initiatives in developing Safety Industry Associations. The ISC Safety Industry Associations will assist those in safety in the service, manufacturing and the business industries partner directly with those in their fields of safety. The aim of the ISC is to bring safety persons together from like industries to further the cause of safety. A big thanks goes to Edwin G. Foulke, Jr., Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, for making himself available, and to meet and talk to as many ISC members that time allowed.
