In this episode, Ted and Barb welcome Matthew Herron, MS, PE, CSP, CPE. Matthew has over 10 years of experience as a Safety Professional. He is currently the Senior Safety Engineer for the Mechanical Engineering Division at Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, Texas. Matthew is very passionate about safety and he even gives back by being a mentor who teaches young students the importance of safety and being a safety professional. He talks about the Professional Education grants offered by ASSP, his journey with the foundation and the start of his career as a Safety Professional. 

According to Matthew, he started his career by hearing about it from someone. He said he didn’t have any idea about safety until someone told him about it which is usually what happens to most of the Safety Professionals. Safety Profession is something that people are not much aware of which is why Matthew is eager to let students and kids know about it. He added that we need the next generation of Safety Professionals since it’s tough to find them these days. Shedding light on the subject is his means of helping the community be aware of the importance of Safety Professionals.
