ASSP Certification and Accreditation Institute Debuts

Monday, August 27, 2018
The new ASSP Certification and Accreditation Institute LLC, an independent entity of the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) in Park Ridge, IL, has begun working with companies to certify that their workplace safety and health processes meet established standards that demonstrate a commitment to quality. The institute’s certification mark, which confirms adherence to specific standards, reflects a company’s investment in occupational safety and health management and helps provide a competitive advantage in the industry.

The creation of the institute further drives the evolution of workplace safety and health worldwide. The fee-based program certifies that an applying organization based on recognized voluntary national and international consensus standards. The ASSP Board of Directors approved the initiative in April and the institute launched its web page in August. The institute is partnering with an accredited third-party registrar, Orion Registrar Inc., to carry out the audits, verify the results of the assessment and issue a certification mark once requirements are met.

“As the market for workplace safety and health systems becomes more global, certifications become more valuable and are more frequently pursued,” says ASSP President Rixio Medina, CSP, CPP. “ASSP has led the evolution of workplace safety for more than 100 years, so it makes sense to leverage our experience and create a seal of approval that identifies a strong commitment to safety and health.”
