Hurricane Safety Resources

Posted: Sep 01, 2017

As we watch how communities and volunteers are coming together in response to Harvey’s aftermath, we are truly inspired and encouraged that even through tragic events, we as a nation can come together and help our neighbors in need.  ASSE Region III is proud to be a part of this effort and want to do our part in meeting those needs.

To assist our first responders and volunteers participating in the ongoing clean-up efforts, here are some links to resources available to help keep those workers safe.

8/31/17 Update from Region III Leadership

Hello Members of ASSE,

Like all of us, the last several days have left us at a complete loss for words. While the news repeated statements such as devastation, epic, and unprecedented I stood by feeling helpless, anxious and eager. Through the abundance of text messages and emails we all received from friends and family across the country, there is no doubt that we WILL be back…better than ever…and dare we say, it’s going to be honor to play even a small part of that.  Monetary donations can be made thru the following link: https://www.youcaring.com/asseregioniiimemberstheirfamiliesandallaffected-919937.

ASSE Name Change is Official!

Posted: Aug 17, 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.

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.

The ASSE’s logo will undergo small adjustments that correspond with its name change.
