My goals and vision for the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) mirrors those that already characterize the organization’s mandate – to identify hazards, protect people, prevent injuries, improve work environments and educate management that investing in safety is a sound business strategy.
In advocating for the OSH profession, I wholeheartedly subscribe to the four tenets articulated so well by former ASSP president Rixio Medina:
- I support evidence-based practices. As President Medina said, we must continue to make the case, both inside and outside the profession, that research and evidence drive problem-solving and support the practical, risk-based solutions we recommend.
- I believe in the importance and overarching value of communication. We must continuously strive to improve our ability to collaborate effectively with stakeholders, colleagues, employers and employees to enhance worker safety and health.
- I subscribe to ASSP’s long-held support for proactive risk management. As the Society continues to develop more resources to help expand risk-related skills, knowledge and abilities, our profession will benefit. By helping our organizations prevent losses before they occur, we can clearly demonstrate the business value of a safe, healthy workplace.
- I wholeheartedly agree with the ASSP belief that OSH professionals must be viewed as valued corporate partners who can develop and articulate business cases for protecting our employers’ internal and external assets, stakeholders and the community. We must continue to find new ways to influence the actions of individuals and work groups and to improve the output of systems so we can achieve shared goals.
As a member of ASSP and a Director-at-Large, I will make it my priority to do my part to enhance the value and benefit of ASSP membership and to increase awareness of the Society’s role in ensuring safe workplaces all across America.
