Who We Are
ASSP’s Consultants Practice Specialty member community is geared toward ASSP members who are occupational safety and health (OSH) consultants and serve organizations either internally or externally to make workplaces safer. We aim to provide the necessary education and networking opportunities you need to stay abreast of technical OSH information, as well as business management insight for operating a consulting firm.
What We Do
For ASSP members within the Consultants 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 OSH and business management education geared toward safety consultants, and volunteer and leadership opportunities to build your skills and enhance your resume
- Relevant content that can be put into practice and shared with your clients or organization to create safe, productive work environments that improve company reputation
Why It Matters
By keeping you informed of the latest technical OSH information, we know you’ll be better equipped to serve your clients or employer regarding their safety initiatives. Further, if you operate or work for an external OSH consulting firm, our education around the unique demands of running a business, such as marketing, accounting, insurance, and networking with others in a similar position — are tremendously valuable.

Professional Development Grant
Consultants often pay for professional development — conferences, certification, classes — out of their own pocket. As a member of the Consultants Practice Specialty, you are eligible for our professional development grant through the ASSP Foundation. We welcome donations to the fund as well.

Consultants Practice Specialty Mentor Program
Our mentoring program helps connect experienced safety consultants and those professionals who are newer to the safety consulting field, so each party can gain knowledge and skills relevant to both the occupational safety and health field and consulting practice.
