ASSE to Become American Society of Safety Professionals
Posted - Aug 25, 2017
Following the outcome of a historic membership vote, ASSE will become the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) next year when it launches a redesigned website in conjunction with Safety 2018 in San Antonio, TX. ASSE’s logo will undergo small adjustments to reflect the new ASSP acronym as well.
Over a 45-day period that ended Aug. 13, ASSE members cast votes on the proposed name, which was approved by the House of Delegates during its annual meeting in June. The final tally found 74% of members (3,651) in favor of the change. Fourteen percent of eligible members cast ballots, surpassing the minimum voting requirement of 1%.
