Thursday, March 01, 2018
Each March, ASSE members elect leaders to serve at the board, council, region, practice specialty, common interest group and area levels.

Looking Back, Looking Ahead

Tuesday, January 02, 2018
As this new year unfolds, many of us are reflecting on accomplishments from last year and envisioning even greater achievements in the coming year. Over the last few weeks, many of us have spent time talking with family, friends and colleagues about where we have been and where we hope to go.

The Role of Research in OSH

Friday, December 01, 2017
One of our key goals this year is to expand the Society’s commitment to research. As OSH professionals, we need evidence-based practices to drive our decision making and inform our efforts to develop standards of practice. Research will also help us fill gaps in our body of knowledge, which will enable us to convince more employers to implement safety and health management programs.

Setting the Standard

Thursday, November 02, 2017
As safety professionals, we work with voluntary national consensus standards each day. These standards are vital to our continued efforts to eliminate hazards, reduce risks and prevent injuries.

2017-18 ASSE President
