Founded in 1911, the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) is the world’s oldest and largest organization dedicated to safety professionals. ASSP members manage, supervise and consult on safety, health, and environmental issues for manufacturing firms, service industries, construction, insurance, consulting firms and the government. Member job titles are primarily safety engineers, industrial hygienists, safety coordinators, loss control & loss prevention experts, consultants, owners, and upper management (selectable by keyword).
ASSP members strive to anticipate and prevent hazardous conditions and
practices in the workplace as well as implement and administer safety & health programs. Safety professionals need to have a fundamental knowledge of a wide array of topics including physics, chemistry, biology, physiology, statistics, mathematics, computer science, engineering mechanics, industrial processes, business, communication and psychology. This makes them excellent prospects for thousands of offers related to occupational safety, health and loss control.
