Posted: Jan 22, 2016
It all started last summer at the ASSE PDC in Orlando. Perdue Farms of Salisbury, MD who has many active members of the Delmarva Chapter was looking to begin a Safety Management Trainee process. After visiting the Millersville University booth at the PDC and speaking with some of the students, Perdue quickly came to realize that the MU Occupational Safety &Environmental Health Program would be a great partner.
After a few calls and a face to face meeting with Dr. Jack Ogutu & Dr. Mehdi Khalighi both Assistant Professor’s of Applied Engineering Safety & Technology was scheduled. Frank Cruice a member of the Delmarva chapter travels to MU and meet with Dr Jack and Mehdi along with Trish McEvoy, the MU ASSE Student Section President. Based on those calls and meeting it was agreed there were significant interest in providing/conducting specialized training for the student section.
