ASSP Certification and Accreditation Institute Debuts

The new ASSP Certification and Accreditation Institute LLC, an independent entity of the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP), has begun working with companies to certify their workplace safety and health processes to established standards that demonstrate a commitment to quality. The institute’s certification mark, which confirms adherence to specific standards, reflects a company’s investment in occupational safety and health management and is expected to provide a competitive advantage in the industry.

The creation of the institute further drives the evolution of workplace safety and health worldwide. The fee-based program certifies an applying organization based on recognized voluntary national and international consensus standards.
