The ASSP Foundation is committed to a safer future for workers. We advance occupational safety and health (OSH), we promote OSH as a career choice, and we help build a sustainable talent pipeline for the profession.
Our strategic direction is focused on leveraging the support of the ASSP community to build a strong pipeline of OSH professionals. This strategy is anchored in our mission, vision and values to deliver on priorities that include recruitment to the profession, career guidance along the path of a safety professional’s career, providing education opportunities as well as access to those opportunities, and leadership development and growth of individuals within the profession.
To address the challenge that is presented with how an individual enters the occupational safety and health (OSH) profession, and to meet the needs of employers and address the quality of OSH professionals, the ASSP Foundation is developing a comprehensive educational framework to assist in a learner’s career advancement, no matter where they are in their journey.
The ASSP Foundation Educational Framework Development Task Force will be active leaders in modeling, revising, and promoting flexible and adaptable education and training pathways that are grounded in industry standards that respond to labor market needs and the shifting world of work.
