Continuing Education Needs Survey

Posted: Jan 29, 2018

The University of Houston Clear Lake (UHCL) is planning to offer continuing education courses to support the professional development of our graduates and health and safety professionals in the Houston region. The courses will be designed to prepare individuals for professional certification (e.g., CIH or CSP), as well as provide continuing education credits for those already certified. We wish to serve the profession the best we can and help our graduates and other professionals advance their careers, make Houston workplaces safer and more productive and help support our local economy.

Your answers are anonymous.

You will be able to see the combined results of all respondents upon completion.

PPE Donations – Hurricane Harvey

Posted: Sep 11, 2017

Region III and Gulf Coast Chapter are working together to provide PPE donations to those affected by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Please see details below:

In the Houston area – Medsafe is warehousing all donations.

1. If anyone wants to ship donations

a. Email Cindy (busytxgal@gmail.com) using PPE Donations as the subject line. Let me know what is being shipped in terms of items and volumes. And the method of shipping so we can try to keep track of everything.

b. Ship/Drop off to: MEDSAFE 4200 Underwood LaPorte, TX 77571 Attn: Burk Shaw, President – ASSE Hurricane Harvey PPE Donation2.

If anyone wants to do a direct purchase of supplies, you can contact MEDSAFE at 800-330-9240 or 281-476-5392. You’ll need to inform the staff at MEDSAFE that you are purchasing PPE suppliers for the ASSE Hurricane Harvey PPE Donation.

MEDSAFE is providing the supplies as close to cost as they can. If you do not have an account with MEDSAFE then you should expect to pay by credit card – otherwise it will delay getting the order processed due to setting up the account. MEDSAFE has a “wish list” of PPE from us to make it easier on their folks and anyone who wants to donate items. To make it easier MEDSAFE has created an account where you can purchase online.

In the Corpus Christi area – REPCON is warehousing all donations. If you’d like to ship or drop off items please email me the list of items (same as above busytxgal@gmail.com using PPE Donations as the subject line). The address is: REPCON Inc 1138 Heinsohn Rd Corpus Christi, TX 78405
