ASSP's Corporate Listening Tour

About ASSP

Tackling Today's Safety Challenges

ASSP is the community that protects people, property and the environment. Our goal is to have all workers return home to their loved ones safe, healthy and well each day. 

As the guardians of workplace safety, we believe that safety, health and well-being are inherent rights of every worker. We strive to collaborate with our members, regulators, like-minded organizations and businesses to achieve this aspirational goal. 

To achieve this goal, we need to understand the safety challenges businesses face. That’s why, over the past six years, we have convened the ASSP Executive Safety Forum, a group of nearly 60 ASSP members who are the top safety leaders in their organizations. In addition, for the last four years, we have conducted an annual corporate listening tour with a broad cross-section of safety executives to gather their insights about safety challenges facing organizations today. 

By understanding the trends and challenges impacting the occupational safety and health (OSH) profession, we can ensure we are a trusted advisor to OSH professionals, as well as the workers and companies these individuals serve. Those efforts enable us to provide a strong professional community, support the ongoing development of future and current professionals, and deliver the greatest value to help OSH professionals better lead their organizations toward improved performance and business outcomes. 

Our Corporate Listening Tour Report

The 2024 edition of our report highlights five key findings based on the insights from our discussions. For each finding, we identify where it is having the greatest impact — workplace, work, workforce — and indicate the intensity of organizational focus needed — with immediate meaning “now” and mid-term meaning “near future.” We also highlight what these findings mean to organizations and OSH professionals and propose a set of questions to help spark discussions among safety teams, as well as with their colleagues and corporate leaders.
