Most managers and safety professionals have heard of the work of Peter F. Drucker, called by many the father of modern management and the man who invented management. His pioneering work at General Motors, in Concept of the Corporation (Drucker, 1946) and his many books, articles and publications have provided the foundation for what is now termed general management. Knowing Drucker’s ideas and how to put them to use can provide a key link to the management team in organizations, and improve individual and organizational effectiveness.

A company that manages moisture in its buildings will reduce the risk of mold
growth, business interruption, employee complaints, and negative PR. The time to
think about moisture and mold growth in a building is not after it becomes evident; it
is before you break ground, consider building and mechanical design, construction
life cycle, preventative maintenance, building operation and incident recovery preparedness.
When an event does occur, it is important to take an approach that is appropriate to both remediate damaged materials and mitigate the water source.
The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) offers assistance to both safety professionals
and employers of safety professionals through its on-line resource the Body of Knowledge. This
powerful tool helps users identify best practices to better protect people, property, and the
environment. For professionals in the field seeking resources and guidance, the Body of Knowledge includes checklists, technical papers, presentation information, training material, and program outlines in a variety of formats including web links, Word documents, PDFs, PowerPoint slides, and videos.
It is imperative that the EHS professional have a general understanding of why environmental regulations exist, how compliance is typically achieved, and when changes may
impact a sites regulatory obligations. Understanding these three elements will enable the EHS professional to manage the entire Environmental Management System more effectively and
efficiently, from A to Z. This paper will focus on air requirements and obligations, but
the same tools and concepts can be applied to other environmental aspects, such as waste and
Photovoltaic (PV) renewable energy continues to grow on a global basis. Currently, Europe leads
the world with nearly 75% of total installations; however, the United States now produces 10% of
the world’s remaining solar capacity. Due to a velocity of growth in this industry, vulnerabilities to unintended consequences may include fires, building collapse, electrocution, injuries/fatalities to workers, including slips, trips and falls, and the impairment of fire-fighting activities. This report will highlight the challenges and importance of embedding safety management for the successful design, commissioning and ongoing maintenance of rooftop PV installations.
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).

During the past few years, companies have been moving toward developing environmental, safety and health management systems in order to organize their regulatory and internal company requirements and information. It is necessary for safety and environmental resources to understand the benefits in developing a management system that will meet their company’s specific needs.
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.
