Health/Safety Certification Mark Sends MessageJanuary 25, 2019
The new ASSP Certification and Accreditation Institute LLC, an independent entity of the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP), is working with companies to certify their safety and health processes to voluntary consensus standards geared to reduce workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities. The institute’s certification mark, which confirms adherence to specific standards such as ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems, reflects a company’s investment in safety and health management while providing a competitive advantage in the industry.
As secretariat for multiple national and global standards, including ISO 450001, Z10 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems and ISO 31000 Risk Management Guidelines, ASSP plays a key role in developing consensus standards that incorporate industry best practices.
According to a survey by the Independent Association of Accredited Registrars, 86 percent of companies that certify with a reputable accreditation organization realize a positive return on investment.
The ASSP Certification and Accreditation Institute, launched this past summer, is working with an accredited third-party registrar to conduct the audits, verify results of the assessment and issue a certification mark when all requirements are met.
