The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) has selected its first group of recipients for a new award and professional development program that aims to advance occupational safety and health careers while supporting the entire profession. ASSP’s 2020 Emerging Professional Award was earned by five next-generation safety leaders who demonstrate leadership, volunteerism and a desire to widely impact workplace safety through their involvement in the world’s oldest professional safety organization.
“Today’s emerging professionals are tomorrow’s leaders in occupational safety and health,” said ASSP President Diana Stegall, CSP, CFPS, ARM, SMS, CPCU. “We want to support their personal and professional growth so they are well-positioned to help advance the profession and strengthen our Society. This year’s group has exceptional potential and we look forward to seeing them take on greater volunteer leadership roles over time.”
