ASSP’s Construction Practice Specialty member community is committed to advancing safety in the construction industry by providing you, as an ASSP member, with the education and networking opportunities you need for your professional growth and understanding of worksite safety.

What We Do

For ASSP members within the Construction Practice Specialty, we provide the following:

 

  • Networking opportunities via social media groups, conference calls and in-person meetings like the annual Professional Development Conference so you can connect with top industry professionals
  • Professional development opportunities, including construction safety-focused education, mentor relationships that facilitate sharing knowledge, and volunteer and leadership opportunities to build your skills and enhance your resume
  • Safety-related, construction-industry focused content that can be put into practice and shared with employers and colleagues to create safe, productive work environments that improve company reputation

Why It Matters

Connecting safety professionals within the construction industry, and providing them with timely, educational and relevant information, serves the interests of all parties — from the construction industry to the occupational safety and health industry, and from employers to workers to safety professionals.
