Young Professionals in OSH Common Interest Group -01Who We Are

The Emerging Professionals in Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Common Interest Group is dedicated to investing in the future of ASSP and the safety profession by identifying, connecting and developing leaders who are just entering the field or approaching mid-career.

What We Do

Our Emerging Professionals member community provides countless opportunities for members to connect with great resources and great people while learning the skills it takes to be a great safety leader.

  • We provide a unique lens into the future of the safety profession by engaging students and entry-level to mid-career safety professionals within ASSP
  • With approximately 4,000 members, Emerging Professionals provides a vast and supportive community for networking, collaboration and change-making
  • Local, national and virtual networking and collaboration opportunities abound, bringing together members to advocate on OSH

Why It Matters

The OSH industry and its leaders should be as diverse as all the different businesses and employees served. Workers are more likely to respond to safety initiatives that are spurred by people to whom they can relate and trust. Having diverse safety professionals helps ensure this. Through your involvement with this group you will gain the knowledge, skills and abilities you need to be successful safety professionals.

Emerging Professionals Mentor Program

We connect rising OSH professionals within the Emerging Professionals community with experienced professionals to help sustain the future of the profession; create lifelong relationships among members; and enhance mentees’ leadership skills and business acumen.
