About

The West Michigan Chapter of the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) has over 240 members on its mailing list from all over West Michigan. Our membership is made up of a wide range of people in the field of safety. This includes people who are new to the safety profession, students, those with the CSP designation, or are working toward it. We know that the field is too big for any one person to know everything – and recognize the value of networking – to learn from others who may have “been there and done that.”

Interested in membership in ASSP?  Visit www.assp.org or contact customer service at 847-699-2929 (8:30 – 5:00 Central Time)
