Following Membership Vote, ASSE to Adopt New Name in 2018

Published August 23, 2017

​The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) announced last week that its membership has voted to adopt a new name in 2018. In conjunction with its annual meeting next year, ASSE will become the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP). The vote followed research conducted last year with ASSE members, customers, and stakeholders, which found that a new name would help eliminate confusion about who could join the society.

ASSE’s logo will undergo small adjustments to reflect the name change. The society also plans to launch a redesigned website in conjunction with Safety 2018 in June.
