The proposed organizational name change to the American Society of Safety Professionals passed by membership vote. After verifying ballots, 4,918 votes were received out of 35,138 eligible for a return rate of 14%. 74% (3,651) of votes are in favor, 26% (1,267) opposed.
We plan to implement use of the new organizational name and brand in alignment with SAFETY 2018, June 3-6, in San Antonio, TX and the launch of our new website. Until then, the organization will conduct business as usual as the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE).
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
“Our members have clearly voiced that the American Society of Safety Professionals better reflects our diverse membership. Workplace safety is constantly evolving, so our society must adjust as well to remain strong and relevant while growing our profession.”
– Jim Smith, M.S., CSP, ASSE President
