If you’re a news reporter who covers business, risk management, insurance or workplace safety, American Society of Safety Professionals can provide you with data and connect you to expert sources to help tell a compelling story about how safety impacts business.
American Society of Safety Professionals is a global association for occupational safety and health professionals dedicated to creating safe work environments across all industries. For more than 100 years, ASSP has been at the forefront of helping occupational safety and health professionals protect people and property through their efforts to prevent workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities.

ASSP is calling on employers to take well-known steps to protect America’s workers from fatal injuries in response to newly released data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The numbers only slightly decreased from 2016 to 2017. “This level of worker safety and health is not acceptable,” said ASSP President Rixio Medina.
Registration is open for the nation’s largest conference for occupational safety and health professionals. ASSP expects to draw more than 5,000 attendees from 40 countries to its Safety 2019 Professional Development Conference and Exposition in New Orleans. The event exposes attendees to best practices, industry trends and the latest product innovations.
ASSP launched a biweekly Safety Standards and Tech Pubs Podcast to help occupational safety and health professionals stay informed of industry consensus standards and technical publications. The podcast debuted in October and already includes six episodes.
Companies that choose to certify occupational safety and health processes to industry consensus standards can ensure legislative compliance, improve a company’s reputation and standing in the marketplace, demonstrate a commitment to worker safety and health, and help improve productivity. The ASSP Certification and Accreditation Institute is working with companies to achieve those goals, thereby providing a valuable competitive advantage.
At ASSP's Seminarfest 2019, attendees can learn why the Total Worker Health model developed by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health is the way of the future. The advanced approach can help break down organizational silos and foster a more holistic view of employee well-being.
