Student Sections

Students

Our student sections are member communities specifically for student members aspiring to become safety professionals — offering leadership, education and networking opportunities.

The Benefits of ASSP Student Sections

ASSP student sections exist at select colleges and universities. They are designed for student members pursuing careers in the occupational safety and health (OSH) field. They provide additional opportunities for students to learn more about their chosen areas of study, promote interaction between students and safety professionals, and offer excellent, resume-building leadership opportunities for student section officers. Because student sections are housed at colleges and universities and supported by nearby ASSP chapters and regions, these groups offer the added benefit of local networking.

How ASSP Supports Student Sections

Student sections require guidance and assistance from ASSP parent chapters to facilitate their success. In addition, ASSP oversees faculty advisors and provides guidelines for student section structures and meetings. ASSP maintains a database of all student section members, provides free access to the digital edition of Professional Safety and informs all student members, faculty advisors, chapter student section liaisons and chapter presidents of newsworthy events through monthly communications with students.
