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.

The world’s oldest professional safety society transitioned to a new brand that includes a new name, refreshed logo, redesigned website and rebranded social media channels. ASSP represents the many diverse disciplines that make up the dynamic occupational safety and health community.
ASSE and BCSP conducted a 33-question salary survey in March of nearly 10,000 safety, health and environmental professionals based primarily in the United States and Canada, identifying the typical salary, benefits, credentials and experience of these individuals. The median base salary for full-time professionals was $97,000.
Through its Family Scholarship Fund, the ASSE Foundation awarded $10,000 scholarships to Lindsey Pinkerton of Nebraska and Samantha Wooten of New Hampshire. The fund provides educational scholarships to spouses and children to help reduce the financial impact of a loved one not returning home from work.
Two new occupational safety and health books debut at Safety 2018. Available for purchase will be "Safety Leadership and Professional Development," edited by Richard Olawoyin and Darryl C. Hill, and "Fred Manuele on Safety Management," written by Fred Manuele and edited by Professional Safety’s Tina Angley.
Hispanic and Latino workers suffer higher fatality rates than other U.S. workers, leading ASSE to launch a collaborative effort to seek solutions. A Hispanic/Latino Worker Safety Workshop brought together a diverse cross-section of more than 50 influencers who identified priorities for reducing the worker safety and health disparity.
