Fatigue is a nonspecific condition
that affects people periodically
in life (CCOHS, 2014; Nordqvist,
2014). People with fatigue often express
lack of energy, discomfort, feeling unwell
or sleepy, loss of motivation, poor
concentration, and difficulty in making
decisions and performing daily tasks.
Expression of fatigue in individuals and
collectively in groups raises obvious concerns
about safe performance of work
(CCOHS, 2014; Hallowell, 2010).
The purpose of this research project was to better understand compensation trends among Safety, Health, and Environmental (SH&E) professionals. Since 2008, the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) has measured and reported salary and employment trend data as a service to its certificants and SH&E professionals. In 2015, BCSP hoped to develop a more complete SH&E employment trend and salary picture by inviting five partners to participate in the data collection process. Partners: ASSE - American Society of Safety Engineers; ABIH - American Board of Industrial Hygiene; AHMP - Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals;
AIHA - American Industrial Hygiene Association; and IHMM - Institute of Hazardous Materials Management.
A 2015 American Society of Safety Engineers survey of more than 9,000 occupational safety and health professionals reveals they earn an annual base salary on average of $98,000, an increase of $8,000 since the survey was taken two years ago.
The ASSE survey results are part of an expansive collaboration with the American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH), Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals (AHMP), American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) and Institute of Hazardous Materials Management (IHMM).

The research examines legal strategies for avoiding prosecution by OSHA. Safety and health regulations and standards of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 often do not protect workers because employers have many legal strategies to avoid OSHA’s prosecution of violative conditions, so regulations need to be reformed. Although OSHA is responsible for enforcement of the Act, evidence demonstrates that employers continue to expose the workforce to unmitigated hazards.
Mobile technology can be used to improve workplace
safety and increase the efficiency of a safety
program. This presentation focuses on the breadth of
mobile applications that are available to safety
professionals for use in enhancing their organization’s
safety program performance, and examines
a case study that demonstrates the effectiveness
of mobile applications
This is a historic document titled "Occupational Safety and Health Laws in the United States, Mexico, and Canada". This document would be of value to those SH&E Professionals with goblal responsibilities including Mexico and Canada. The document gives and overview and summary of each country and then does provide some comparisons.
A syllabus for accident investigation and root cause analysis course is provided in ABET format with student learning outcomes tied back to performance evaluation objectives for curriculum.
This Safety 2013 conference presentation provides an update on the ASSE Government Affairs Committee.
One major staple and unique attribute of the SH&E profession is the ability to share knowledge among peers. This collaboration enhances the knowledge of new professionals, provides the ability to benchmark among peers and most importantly allows professionals to always improve and innovate. To further enhance these efforts, ASSE has created a Body of Knowledge (BOK), which compiles resources on all aspects of the SH&E profession and makes them available to ASSE members.
Industrial fall protection is an ever expanding category of occupational health and safety. Unlike other forms of hazardous energy such as electrical or mechanical, gravitational potential energy is universal and affects every organization. To combat the dangers associated with working at height, fall protection equipment manufacturers have developed a plethora of devices to safely arrest a worker in the event of a fall. Although there are many different types of fall protection devices, some of the most common are energy absorbing lanyards.
The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
