Oct. 23, 2017

Two Slippery Rock University alumni were selected to attend a recent safety conference in Singapore. Stephanie Claus, '16, and Bryan Robert Deal, '17, graduates with bachelor's degrees in safety management, were part of the SafeYouth@Work Congress, organized through the International Labour Organization as part of the World Congress on Safety and Health at Work.

The pair were the only two U.S. citizens chosen by the ILO to attend out of 127 participants from 35 countries. Attendees submitted applications discussing the importance of safety and preventing injuries to youth workers in their countries and developed prototypes, such as apps for mobile devices, to introduce safety to young workers that were reviewed by the ILO.

Claus is a loss control representative for Nationwide Insurance. Deal is a risk control trainee for CNA Insurance. They both reside in Dallas, Texas.
