Many view the pending ISO 45001 standard on OSH management systems as the most significant safety-related standard in a generation. As administrator of the U.S. technical advisory group advising ANSI on the standard's development, ASSE is playing a lead role in shaping the standard's content, as well as leading the effort to educate OSH professionals about its components and practical applications. The Society will debut its ISO 45001 Certificate Program during SeminarFest 2017, February 9-16, in Las Vegas, NV.
