About the Program

The Future Safety Leaders Conference, held every November, brings students from more than 40 universities, OSH professionals and top employers together for a two-day conference focused on providing tools to help students transition from student life to successful safety professionals.

Participants engage in roundtable discussions with experienced OSH professionals, gaining valuable career advice. They learn strategies from presenters on how to be an effective leader and communicator. In addition to resume critiques, public speaking and how get the most out of ASSP, representatives from safety-conscious companies conduct mock interviews and set up booths where attendees may learn more about their companies.

The FSLC consists of students that are active in ASSP Student Sections, stand out from their peers and seek additional knowledge of the profession outside their classroom. Students are provided an exceptional opportunity to network with hiring organizations, develop interviewing and communication skills and instill leadership skills in future OSH professionals.
