FUTURE SAFETY LEADERS CONFERENCE

November 2020 – March 2021

ASSP’s Future Safety Leaders Virtual Programming

Typically, ASSP hosts an annual two-day conference where practicing safety professionals educate, develop and mentor a select group of ASSP student members, helping them kickstart their careers and transition from student life to employment in the occupational safety and health (OSH) field.

However, we know that the world, and particularly how and where we learn, will look different as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic. Planning for the future in uncertain times requires trust, nimbleness and knowledge. This means things will look different for ASSP and our programming for future safety leaders. 

Instead of the standard two-day live in-person event, ASSP is hosting future safety leaders programming virtual events both students and emerging professionals beginning in November through March 2021. These events include roundtable discussions with top companies like Amazon, Grainger and Liberty Mutuals, sessions about kickstarting your career, and more. Registration is now open for the January events.
