New DOL database.The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) unveiled a new ‘Safety, Health and Environmental Body of Knowledge’ (BOK) tool at its recent Leadership Conference for ASSE members. The tool is a compilation of occupational safety, health and environmental (SH&E) information in one searchable, interactive on-line database which aims to provide the safety profession, businesses, communities and more the information they need when it comes to SH&E.

ASSE President Terrie S. Norris, CSP, ARM, noted that the BOK contains papers, presentations, videos and podcasts gleaned from ASSE professional development conference proceedings, practice specialty newsletter articles, ASSE webinars, ASSE Professional Safety magazine articles and thousands of materials gathered from other key sources.

“One of ASSE’s goals is to be the recognized source of occupational safety, health and environmental knowledge and resources and to raise the bar on the practice of safety through knowledge sharing,” Norris said. “This is only the beginning. The BOK will offer new features as technology evolves. Its value and resources will continue to grow as our members create new materials and as new content is added.”

Norris said that ASSE members and practitioners are invited to contribute to the project and its information database.

Currently, there is no cost to members for the BOK and non-members have limited free access. The goal of the BOK is to provide competency models,  professional guidance, best practices and policies and procedures aimed at supporting the mission and vision for the users’ companies and to help SH&E professionals continue their professional growth.

Information on the BOK is at www.safetybok.org
