Employer Justification


Invest in your workers' safety by paying for your safety staff's membership in the American Society of Safety Professionals. You will see a return on the investment for your business and improve your employees’ well-being.

Demonstrate Your Commitment to Safety

Sound safety practices are both socially responsible and good business. Research and industry experience suggest that organizations that invest in occupational safety and health (OSH) experience a return on their investment. Returns stem from:

  • Increased productivity among employees
  • A positive reputation among employees, clients and prospects
  • Higher employee satisfaction

Your safety professionals will get real value from belonging to ASSP. That’s why 50 percent of our members currently have their membership fees either reimbursed or paid by their employer. Our members are dedicated to creating safe work environments by preventing workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses. We share our members' dedication, and are passionate about helping them achieve their goals by providing a vibrant community of people who provide great resources, delivering top-quality continuing education and promoting industry best practices through consensus standards and evidence-based approaches to OSH.

A Worthwhile Investment

Your organization will receive many benefits when you invest in ASSP membership for your safety team. A large percentage of our members' employers already recognize this value and pay for membership fees. By supporting your team's ASSP membership, at an average cost of about $200 a year per member, your organization will experience increased productivity, achieve a better reputation and deliver higher employee satisfaction.

When the safety professionals at your organization can connect with others locally, in your industry or with others who share a common interest, it increases their access to best practices and improves their ability to solve problems. We represent OSH professionals in all industries, connecting ASSP members in similar circumstances and across age, gender and ethnicity so they can share resources and achieve the highest levels of performance.

Content and Information

Business is always changing, and so are the workplace hazards that put your business at risk. It’s critical that safety professionals have access to the latest information and practices regarding workplace safety so they can integrate what they learn into programs that protect your workers and improve your business.

Sharing knowledge is at the heart of what we do — providing ASSP members with valuable insight through access to highly regarded publications, continuing education, and a vast community of peers, resources and networking.
