Engineering Practice Specialty Mentorship Program


Join our Engineering Practice Specialty for access to a network of professionals with industry expertise, relevant education and information.

Guidelines for Mentors and Mentees

  • You must be a member of ASSP and the Engineering Practice Specialty to participate in this program.
  • Mentors and mentees must adhere to the ASSP Code of Professional Conduct.
  • We hold all information exchanged between matched pairs for mentoring in strict confidence; applications are viewed only by the matching committee.
  • Mentors and mentees should commit to at least one hour per month for a meeting, by phone, e-mail or in person.
  • Each mentoring pair should download the Individual Development Plan, a tool to navigate the mentoring relationship in a structured and effective manner.
  • Matches take place two times per year – in March and September – for a total mentorship length of six months, with a review of the match after six months for a potential extension of the match if desired by the pair.
  • Mentors are not expected to provide employment or business opportunities for mentees — just life lessons, advice, coaching and mentoring.

The Engineering Practice Specialty will assist with the coordination of the first discussion and development of goals for the mentorship. We are available to assist as needed throughout the process. This is a tremendous opportunity to learn and share best practices and lessons learned for new safety professionals along with leadership/coaching opportunities for mentors.
