Practitioner hailed for ‘making a difference’

A leading US health and safety practitioner has been presented with the prestigious American Society for Safety Engineers (ASSE) President’s award for her role as the ASSE Sustainability Taskforce Chair, Global Committee Chair, and for advancing the formation of the Center for Safety and Health Sustainability.   

Kathy A. Seabrook, a member of both the ASSE and IOSH, is president of Global Solutions, Inc. (US) and Global Solutions International (UK). In addition to this award, she was named one of ‘100 Women, Making a Difference in Safety’ and a health and safety ‘guru’ by EHS Today magazine. Seabrook is the ASSE’s current senior vice-president, and serves as an advisory member to the ASSE International Practice Specialty group and IOSH’s International Group.
The Center for Safety and Health Sustainability was born out of a global collaborative effort among the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), the ASSE and IOSH and was launched in June 2011. It is an organisational stakeholder of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), a network-based organisation that pioneered the world’s most widely-used sustainability reporting framework.

GRI’s vast experience in sustainability reporting and its existing network of stakeholders will allow the Center to work toward a standardised framework for measurement and reporting safety and health sustainability/CSR performance as organisations increasingly adopt the ‘triple bottom line’ – or social, economic, and environmental – approach to taking responsibility for sustainability.
