Welcome to the North Carolina American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) 2018 – 2019 chapter year! As you have probably noticed, our name has subtly changed from American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) to American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP). While nearly all of us are safety professionals in our professional careers, very few of us hold the title safety engineer. The change in name to ASSP is intended to attract and serve the needs of safety professionals with varying backgrounds and needs.
I would like to personally thank each member of the executive committee for their assistance in planning for the upcoming year. Each member serves in a voluntary capacity – our chapter simply would not exist without their efforts! Also, I would like to thank our outgoing president, Chris Hinson, for all of his assistance in helping in the transition process. Please contact me or any executive committee member if you are interested in volunteering for our chapter. We have a strong chapter but we’re always striving to move the ball forward.
