ASSE provides a dynamic voice for the occupational safety, health and environmental profession by providing advocacy, education and standards development and by promoting the expertise, leadership and commitment of its members. ASSE members network locally and globally.
Founded in 1911, the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) is the world’s oldest professional safety society. ASSE promotes the expertise, leadership and commitment of its members, while providing them with professional development, advocacy and standards development. It also sets the occupational safety, health and environmental community’s standards for excellence and ethics.
ASSE is a global association of occupational safety professionals representing more than 35,000 members worldwide. The Society is also a visible advocate for SH&E professionals through proactive government affairs at the federal and state levels, and in member-led relationships with key federal safety and health agencies.
Our members create safer work environments by preventing workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses. Besides recording less lost time and lower workers’ compensation costs, organizations with strong safety performance enjoy increased productivity, a better reputation and higher employee satisfaction.
