ASSP has been huge resource for OSH professionals in the United States and in the recent past Region IX formed to extend the same services & support for International OSH professional members. Currently, it is having less percentage of members who are from international Chapters/ Sections. My objective is to improve the OSH professionals’ participation and ASSP footprint.

I will put my best efforts in this direction as an ASSP Region IX - Area 1 Director to achieve them in addition to ASSP Region strategic objectives.
