The Human Resources (HR) Branch specializes in the dual management responsibilities common to both safety, health and environment (SH&E) and HR professionals. It is common for HR professionals to have SH&E responsibilities, and in many companies, SH&E professionals have HR responsibilities or are part of their company’s HR organization. SH&E professionals who run their own company also address HR subjects. The HR and SH&E fields have many complex standards, regulations and best practices that are of great importance to an employer’s overall success and risk management. The HR Branch provides HR and SH&E professionals with an opportunity to network and exchange knowledge, expertise and resources.

The HR Branch is sponsored by the Management Practice Specialty (MPS) and FREE to all MPS members by request.
