international_mainWho We Are

The Global Operations Practice Specialty provides our members an accessible, virtual network of peers focused on developing and sharing technical and professional content which can be applied to solve common challenges to becoming better safety professionals.

What We Do

We provide our members with networking opportunities and technical resources, offer education, and encourage mentorship and collaboration. We serve as an information resource within ASSP on all aspects of global operations related to occupational safety and health. Through sharing best practices our members enable others to more effectively manage risks and implement proactive solutions within their organizations. Our members provide specific safety and health information for their countries; provide awareness of laws/regulations related to occupational safety & health for members who are pursuing responsibilities in their country, and serve as resources to others interested in best practices outside of their home country looking to improve their safety and health programs in their respective country.

Why It Matters

To help create a truly safe, strong future, we share innovative ideas and industry best practices that help organizations protect workers across the global supply chain. Through occupational safety and health management systems, we help global employers improve safety at their facilities around the globe, which leads to greater productivity, better reputations and higher employee satisfaction.
