With a 17-year history and recently known as the American Society for Occupational Safety & Health (ASOSH), the origins of the ASOSH belong to a small group of Engineers who enrolled in and attended the the industrial Safety and Accident Prevention courses conducted by Some of the Technical Colleges in 2003 inside USA. This group remained together and formed nucleus of the American Society for Occupational Safety & Health (ASOSH) and held regular monthly meetings.
Membership of the society expanded steadily and reached the stage where every state had formed a division. With time, it became apparent that the term “Safety Engineering” in the society’s name had an implied bias and emphasised only one of the many disciplines associated with the effective control of accidents, injuries and diseases. As a result, American Society for Occupational Safety & Health (ASOSH) was developed in 2009 with a new constitution and members of the society became members of the new ASOSH.
ASOSH has a long and proud history of working with regulators, employers, unions and government departments in the pursuit of more effective health and safety policy, regulation and in particular, practice. Today across the World, the ASOSH has Hundreds of members and partnerships with many companies who share our vision of safe and healthy workers in productive workplaces and communities.
The health and safety profession has a unique voice, and the American Society for Occupational Safety & Health seeks to express that voice in a positive way as a contribution to the development of Workplace Health and Safety Policy and practice in USA & Worldwide. The Institute has an overarching Policy Agenda, which outlines our core beliefs and the key areas of the focus for our policy, and a series of Position Statements, which reflect the views of the Institute on a range of matters at any given time
