Mission and Vision
Who We Are
ASSP is a global association for occupational safety and health professionals.
What We Do
We provide education, standards development, advocacy and a professional community to support the advancement of our members and the profession as a whole.
Why It Matters
Our members are dedicated to creating safe work environments by preventing workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities. Sound safety practices are both socially responsible and good business, leading to increased productivity, a better reputation and higher employee satisfaction.
ASSP is where occupational safety and health professionals find a vibrant community — one that helps them grow professionally through education and networking, and advocates for the profession.
ASSP is the preferred source for education among safety professionals, providing valuable training, networking, knowledge, skills and continuing education.
ASSP is a leader in the evolution of voluntary occupational safety and health standards that reflect recognized best practices, both in the United States and internationally.
Value of the Profession
ASSP elevates the value of the safety and health profession through innovation, thought leadership and objective promotion of science-based approaches to OSH practices while communicating the value of OSH to key stakeholders.
