Laser Incidents and Responder Safety
You’re invited to a New York Area Science and Technology (NYAST) Forum that

essential knowledge to fortify first responder safety.
NIST expert Josh Hadler will discuss safety implications stemming from the
misuse of lasers covering topics such as aircraft interference and eye injuries.
He will provide a hands-on demonstration to showcase the output power of
lasers and the protection level of law enforcement eyewear.

Portland Police Bureau as he discusses the nefarious use of lasers during
protests and other civil disturbances. He will share law enforcement methods
and PPE used to safeguard against laser incidents, including protective
eyewear and public order helmets.

NYC ASSP Virtual Event – Transportation Safety April 4, 2024 @ 12PM EST

ASSP NYC chapter members,

Please save the date! There will be a virtual event in April.
Flyer will be provided shortly.

Transportation Safety: Why what you do matters? Micro mobility devices,
fatalities, vulnerable roadway users, etc.

When you are behind the wheel, it is essential to prioritize safety, not
just for yourself but also for vulnerable road users like motorcyclists,
bicyclists, scooter riders, runners, and other pedestrians who are not
in vehicles but are still using the road to get where they are going.

Speaker Susan Crotty, National Transportation & Fleet Safety Leader –
Gallagher National Risk Control

Meeting Date: Thursday, April 4, 2024
Meeting Time: 12PM-1PM

Thank you and hope to see you there!

President’s Welcome Message

Greetings Fellow NYC Chapter Members!

It is with great excitement that I commence my term as your Chapter President for the
2023 2024 year. This past year as your Chapter President Elect has been a very rewarding
experience for me personally and professionally.

I would like to take this opportunity to share some of the goals for the 2023
2024 Chapter year.

  1. Continue to fund the NYC Chapter Scholarship that was created with the ASSP
    Foundation and to support the Foundation causes. The NYC Chapter contributed $1,000 to the ASSP Foundation to further the safety profession!
  2. Launch quarterly newsletters and expand continuing education credit opportunities to increase diversity in membership engagement from fields including Risk Management, Legal, Hospitality, Security, Construction, etc.
  3. Partner with other Chapters, Common Interest Groups and Organizations to promote
    professional collaboration and cross functional networking.

NYC Chapter Leadership will continue to lead the charge in developing and implementing
chapter goals and adding “Value” to you, the members.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your Chapter Leader!

Nikhailia Morgan Irving
