Corey B. Jones
Greeting to all NJ Chapter ASSP Members, Executive Board members, Committee Members and Past Presidents. I am grateful for the nomination and chance to serve you all and the ASSP community at large, in addition to servicing my constituencies within the safety community.  “You have two hands. One to help yourself, the second to help others.” Audrey Hepburn. To serve- is my goal as 2020 elected Secretary of the American Society of Safety Professionals New Jersey Chapter.

As a true and tried safety professional of more than fifteen years, I have been a member of ASSP since 2013. I am a Certified Safety Professional (CSP), Construction Health and Safety Technician (CHST), Safety Management Specialist (SMS), Licensed NYC DOB Site Safety Manager (SMS), and holder of various certification. In addition, I hold a Master of Business with a concentration in supply chain management from Seton Hall University (MBA).

While a member of ASSP I have held a standing committee position as chair for Gov’t affairs for 3 years. I have attended Leadership Conference twice and help shape OSHA Latest construction crane standard 1926 subpart CC by providing comment to the proposed rule, during my tenure as Member at large for the Construction Practice Specialty for the past 3 years. I am also a current member of the Blacks in Safety Excellence (BISE), where I am an active mentor to my mentee in the NJ area. I have also personally invested in attending various PDCs, to further my connection with ASSP.

I am well prepared to Serve as Secretary and with that goal in mind my commitment is to diligently execute those duties. I am an excellent listener and an attentive observer. I am a dynamic communicator who will accurately record and disseminate meeting minutes. As a vision for my role as Secretary I will work to develop streamlined processes that will assist future Secretaries. These processes will include ideas around using technological advances within the Society such as the communities platform. Such as customizing sign in sheets from meetings and events, to better understand participants and using that information to generate specific conversations and excitement within the applicable communities. I will continue to solicit guidance and support from chapter leadership and collaboration from membership to bring ideas to fruition. At times my role will include recording of organizational documents for record keeping, I will work with board member, and stake holders within the society to ensure consistency of delivery in accordance with bylaws. Lastly my efforts will be in direct support of Chapter progressions toward Platinum level.  I look forward to the continued success of all Chapter members and hope to remain and grow in Service to all.

Respectfully,

Free Webinar: Managing OSHA in the Trump Era

Date: Tuesday, October 15th, 2019Time: 2pm ET / 11am PT
Duration: 1 hour
Sponsored by: Safety Services

SIGN ME UP!

The Trump Administration’s disinterest in OSHA does not mean that nothing has changed for employers.

They must deal with new State-OSHA regulations, major Court and Commission decisions affecting citations and procedures, and a dizzying array of inspection practices by different OSHA Area Offices and State-Plans. A company’s main focus must be on protecting its workers, but you cannot ignore the parallel tracks of OSHA regulation.This Webinar’s Key Takeaways:

  • The effect of open leadership positions, underfunding, understaffing, and resulting inconsistent training.
  • Managing the scope of an inspection and a renewed importance on procedures such as conducting dual respiratory monitoring.
  • Increasing challenges posed by subs, labor providers, and working on a multiemployer site.

WISE selects NJ ASSP Member Kari Lyons as Member of the Month

ASSP WISE September 19, 2019 announcement.  Congratulations to our  2019 WISE Member of the month: KARI LYONS!

Kari was awarded the August 2019 MotM award for her proactive nature, inclusive manner, and the positive affect it has had on the NJ ASSP and WISE chapter memberships.

“NJ ASSP has not had a membership chair for years” and Kari filled that void, re-initiating welcome communication and the provision of literature. Kari consistently invests a lot of time in the membership arm of the NJ ASSP chapter. She works to be a “positive magnetic force” for new members, young professionals, and students.

And it is paying off as the chapter’s meeting attendance has grown; especially for diverse populations!. Yes, NJ ASSP is “on the map” thanks to the consistency of Kari’s presence, warmth, and engagement. Looking outside of the ASSP chapter, Kari has “been the bridge for WISE membership and membership engagement” and is making it “happening and fun now in NJ!”.

The WISE networking is growing thanks to Kari’s efforts, as is the WISE membership strength and friendship, driving career development and success opportunities. But it is not just all about the people .. people need fun things to do! Kari consistently comes up with “fun and interactive” ideas to enhance meetings, and has “formed an engaging list of opportunities” so that members can get engaged in one Chapter activity or another.

WISE events have benefited from Kari’s touch as well. Kari organized a WISE event at Pinot’s Palette which has been the largest WISE turnout event. “Kari is a 24/7 ASSP and WISE member and always the first to raise a hand or make a call. Her innovative and positive spirit, along with boundless energy, really support WISE membership and retention success at NJ ASSP.” And that is why Kari is the WISE August 2019 MotM. Congratulations, Kari!
