ASSP’s Manufacturing Practice Specialty member community aims to provide a forum for networking and sharing the latest technical content on industry-specific issues in manufacturing facilities of all types, including metal, timber and lumber working facilities, food processing, chemical, rubber and plastics facilities, and printing or publishing locations.

What We Do

For ASSP members within the Manufacturing Practice Specialty community, 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 manufacturing- and safety-focused education you can immediately put into practice, mentor relationships that facilitate sharing knowledge, and volunteer and leadership opportunities to build your skills and enhance your resume
  • Safety-related, manufacturing-focused content and information that you can also immediately implement, as well as share with employers and colleagues, to create safe, productive work environments

Why It Matters

Manufacturing facilities contain a wide variety of safety hazards and exposures that can produce serious and fatal worker injuries. This makes it especially important for you to have access to a network of peers who can provide guidance and insight on safety-related issues in the manufacturing industry, and connect you to the latest technical content that offers direction on the unique challenges you face.
