Service Branch

The Service Branch was established in 2002 to cover issues related to the service and hospitality industries, such as lodging, resort, zoo, restaurant, theme park, retail, entertainment and cruise line safety. The branch’s triannual electronic publication, At Your Service, highlights industry SH&E issues, news and technical topics. Branch members help identify governmental and regulatory issues. They promote research and education, and maintain contact with other key industry organizations and standards committees. The branch sponsors technical sessions, roundtable discussions, event s and tours at ASSE’s annual Professional Development Conference. The Service Branch is sponsored by the Management Practice Specialty (MPS) and is FREE to all MPS members.
