Today, millions of people go to and return home from work safely every day due, in part, to the commitment of the occupational safety, health and environmental (SH&E) practitioners who work day in and day out identifying hazards and implementing safety advances in all industries and at all workplaces, thereby reducing workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses.
Founded in 1911, the Des Plaines, Illinois-based American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) is the oldest and largest safety organization and represents more than 30,000 SH&E practitioners committed to protecting people, property and the environment and are at the forefront of safety engineering, design, standards development, management and education in virtually every industry, governmental agency, labor and education. Presently, ASSE has 151 chapters, 56 sections and 65 student sections. There are also members in 64 countries including Mexico, Ecuador, Saudi Arabia, the United Kingdom, Australia, Kuwait and Egypt. ASSE members serve on over 40 safety and health standards committees including the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
ASSE and its members continue to work towards increasing workplace safety and health and raising awareness globally. Throughout history, the safety profession and safety professionals have attempted to improve working conditions. Through these efforts, many lives are saved each day. However, this work is not complete. Until each worker returns home in the same condition s/he came to work in, ASSE and its members still have a formidable task at hand.
