ASSP is committed to the health and safety of all attendees, exhibitors and staff. We acknowledge that both local regulations and CDC guidance may shift before our June event. Because these factors are frequently changing, we will continue to update this page as new guidance is developed.
By registering for Safety 2022 in Chicago, you agree to follow all local and ASSP event safety protocols in place at the time of the event. You also voluntarily accept the inherent risk of exposure to communicable diseases and agree to not hold ASSP or its representatives liable for any illness related to that risk. Registered attendees will be notified of any changes to this policy.
We are excited to come together in Chicago for Safety 2022! Here is a checklist of the important things you’ll need to do to be prepared for the event:
ASSP is working with CrowdPass, a secure, HIPAA-compliant health clearance platform, to support how all attendees, including pre-conference course participants and special event guests, provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or negative COVID-19 test (taken within 48 hours of badge pickup). If you plan to submit a negative test result, please use the chart below for reference on when to get the test.
After registering for Safety 2022 and before arriving in Chicago for the event, you must create an account and register with CrowdPass. This process involves these steps:
Please review our how-to guide to get started.

Another option is to show conference staff your actual vaccination card/negative test report or show proof of either document on your mobile device.

ASSP will provide a contactless badge printout option for all attendees.
ASSP will work with convention center staff to ensure regular cleaning protocols and room capacities are followed throughout the event.
The ASSP safety team will continue to evaluate these and additional protocols, as well as CDC recommendations, to mitigate risk of exposure during the in-person event so you can have a safe, enjoyable conference experience.
All attendees, exhibitors, staff and vendors will be expected to follow current CDC and local state guidelines for masks that are in place at the time of the event.
To preserve a safe environment, should any participant fail to comply with such protocols, ASSP may take immediate steps including but not limited to denial of entrance to the event or removal of the non-compliant participant from the event. Unless otherwise determined by ASSP in its sole discretion, any participant who is denied access/entrance to or removed from an event based on this policy will not be eligible for a refund of any registration fees paid for access/entrance to or participation in the event.
