Join our Military Practice Specialty for access to a network of safety experts who work with or serve in the military, as well as relevant industry education and information.

Group of young military personnelWho We Are

ASSP’s Military Practice Specialty member community is the premier resource for members looking for technical knowledge and expertise on safety topics — like operational, fleet and off-duty safety — that are relevant to active duty and reserve military personnel, National Guard members and their civil service counterparts.

What We Do

For ASSP members within the Military 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.

Practice Specialty Recognition

  • Professional development opportunities, including military- and OSH-focused education that 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, military-focused content and information that you can immediately implement as well as share with employers and colleagues to create safe, productive work environments.

Why It Matters

Our military branches and those who serve and work in them experience common risks and exposures not generally seen outside military services. This makes it especially important for you to have access to a network of peers who can provide insight and guidance on the professional challenges found in these settings, and connect you to the latest technical content that offers direction on the unique challenges you face.
