Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) was well represented at the Safety 2019 Professional Development Conference & Exposition in New Orleans earlier this month.

Three CTC Employees, Lori Schroth, Brandon Hody, and Chris Chaffin, co-authored a peer-reviewed article that received the Professional Safety Article of the Year Award–Third Place from the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP). Their article, “Medical Marijuana: Addressing Impairment in the Workplace,” appeared in the August 2018 issue of Professional Safety, ASSP’s flagship publication.

Also at the conference, Schroth was presented with the Outstanding Service and Leadership Award for her work as Administrator of the ASSP Public Sector Practice Specialty (PSPS) Advisory Committee. During her term as Administrator, she grew the committee; led white papers, technical articles, and virtual meetings; and won several ASSP-sponsored community inititiaves. Schroth and the entire PSPS Advisory Committee were awarded the ASSP Gold Level Recognition Award for excellence in progressing the practice specialty. In addition to Schroth’s role on the committee, Hody serves at the Assistant Administrator and Chaffin is responsible for Content and Social Media.

Schroth also presented Chaffin with a Certificate of Appreciation for his involvement in professional development activities. He’s been active in writing articles, making presentations, and mentoring other up-and-coming S&H professionals.
