You are invited to contribute technical contents, relevant to your area of specialty, to the ASSE Book Publication of "EHS Leadership & Professional Development", edited by Richard Olawoyin, Ph.D, CEP, CSP and Darryl C. Hill, Ph.D., CSP.

Second, to effectively prepare safety leaders by delivering evidence-based learning, not just on the required skills, but on the theories of leadership and how to make relational connection between the skills and the theories. The strength of the proposed book lies in the contribution of academics and industry professionals. This is intended to enable the easy transfer of best practices in learning into professional practice.
