Common Interest Group - Young Professionals in OSH


The Young Professionals in Occupational Safety and Health Common Interest Group (YP) was established to create a forum for young professionals who are entering the profession and for those individuals who are entering the field mid-career. Our mission is to enhance the Society by identifying, developing and connecting young leaders who possess a passion to expand their knowledge and to promote the occupational safety and health profession.
