Who 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.
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.
