Who We AreWho We Are

ASSP’s Environmental Practice Specialty member community focuses on issues like environmental management, water and air quality, solid and hazardous waste, emergency planning and response practices, chemicals safety and legislative and regulatory monitoring to help companies operate sustainability and act as good stewards of the environment.

  • 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 environmental- and occupational safety and health-focused education that you can immediately put into practice, mentor relationships that facilitate sharing knowledge and volunteer and leadership opportunities to build your resume
  • Environmental-focused content that you can also put into practice and share with employers and colleagues to further environmental-related initiatives
  • Give our members a voice in commenting on relevant OSHA and EPA legislation and in leading discussions on hot topics such as alternative energy and green practices in the workplace

Why It Matters

Through effective environmental strategies and best practices, occupational safety and health professionals help organizations manage waste, conserve energy, reduce pollution and otherwise safeguard the environment. Through these measures, safety professionals help organizations improve their sustainability and ensure compliance with environmental laws and regulations.
