US_President_Seal

On Wednesday, May 16, 2012, WTS International President and CEO Marcia Ferranto visited the White House by special invitation to join the Office of Public Engagement, the Office of Science and Technology Policy, and the U.S. Department of Transportation to celebrate National Transportation Week, highlighting the importance of transportation safety and the launch of Safety.Data.Gov.

With public and product safety being key priorities for the Administration, a series of initiatives spurring the entrepreneurial spirit of the American people to help better inform and protect our citizens was launched.  Safety.Data.Gov provides citizens, industry representatives, advocates, researchers and entrepreneurs with a tool to create innovative solutions that will enhance public safety in communities around the country.

In addition to WTS International, special guests at the meeting included Ray LaHood, U.S. Secretary of Transportation; Seth D. Harris, U.S. Deputy Secretary of Labor; Anne Ferro, Administrator of the U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration; Inez Moore Tenenbaum, Chairman of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission; and Todd Park, U.S. Chief Technology Officer and Assistant to the President for Technology.
