What does it mean to you to be a safety professional?

For me, being a safety professional, means that I have to be a responsible and dedicated professional. You need to care about others, because your job as a safety professional is basically to help people to be safe at work and return to their homes safely at the end of the day.


What led you to a career in safety?

When I was in Colombia, I was studying industrial engineering and my last semester I took a class about health and safety. It was the first time in my career that I've seen how all the things that I learned before actually impact workers, communities, and their families. That's why I decided to start working on safety.

How has ASSP helped you as a safety professional?

ASSP has helped me a lot. They were my first contact when I decided to move to the U.S. I contacted them to find out which university I wanted to do my master's. And then when I was studying, I was part of a student chapter in the university and that helped me a lot to get to know more professionals in the industry.
