PESA board members are dedicated volunteers who share their knowledge, experience, and resources to organize and promote educational trainings for those who are interested in learning about minimizing hazards and reducing injury exposures in the workplace. PESA's goal is to promote health and public safety trainings in the State of Maryland. As a non-profit organization, registration costs are kept to a minimum in order to serve PESA supporters and their employees.

PESA would like to thank the employers for their support and resources in allowing board members the opportunity to network and contribute toward reducing work related injuries in our state.

PESA would also like to recognize those that assist us from behind the scenes as PESA could not promote and deliver quality, valuable conferences without their support.
