New Name!!! ASSE to Become American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP)

Posted: Aug 16, 2017

It’s official: the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) will become the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) in conjunction with Safety 2018 in San Antonio.

Over a 45-day period that ended August 13, ASSE members around the world cast electronic votes on the new name. The switch was approved by 74% of voting members, with the final tally being 3,651 in favor and 1,267 opposed. The new name was unanimously recommended by the ASSE Board of Directors in January and was supported by its House of Delegates in June at Safety 2017 in Denver.

“Our members have clearly voiced that the American Society of Safety Professionals better reflects our diverse membership,” says ASSE President Jim Smith, M.S., CSP. “Engineers made up our entire membership when we were formed, but today the occupational safety and health profession encompasses many disciplines.”

ASSE’s logo will undergo small adjustments that correspond with its name change. The green shield will continue to display the organization’s acronym in gold letters within the four angles of a gold cross, but the “E” will be changed to “P.”
