Calling all new and seasoned ASSP Hispanic Safety Professionals!

The Hispanic Safety Professionals member community within the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) advances Hispanic safety professionals in the occupational safety and health (OSH) profession. Opportunities shared through this common interest group section include networking, collaboration, education and mentoring.

ASSP is a global association for occupational safety and health. ASSP membership benefits OSH professionals across the full career continuum, whether you’re a student, young professional, seasoned manager or corporate leader. Here in Oregon we are fortunate to also have the opportunity to join and network with location-based chapters and sections. The Columbia-Willamette Chapter (first formed in 1941!) serves the broader Portland Metropolitan area. The Mt. St. Helen’s Section of this chapter was created to meet the needs of members living in Southern Washington, and the Santiam Section actively engages with those living in the Mid-Willamette Valley. The Student Section based at Oregon State University is active and thriving. The Cascade Chapter is available for those living in the Eugene area, while the Southern Oregon Chapter serves our Southern Oregon friends and partners. And our newest Oregon Chapter, Broken Top, serves members in the greater Bend area. Broken Top is Oregon’s only new chapter since 1993.

If you are a Hispanic Safety Professional living in Oregon or SW Washington and unfamiliar or inactive with ASSP, our chapters and sections would love for you to reach out to us to learn more. Our professional communities are not just helpful places to learn more to support your job or career, but they are great for making new friends and professional connections. Current ASSP members can receive information about how to waive the Hispanic Safety Professional special interest group, and those not yet ASSP members can learn more about how to join. OSH Professionals outside of Oregon should reach out to ASSP or their local chapter.
