ASSP Recruiting Safety Instructors for Three Events

The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) is seeking a diverse group of occupational safety and health professionals to join its team of instructors now being formed for three education events. The world’s oldest professional safety organization is a longtime industry leader in providing continuing education for workplace safety and health professionals around the world.

ASSP’s call for instructors covers courses to be delivered at SafetyFOCUS Fall on Oct. 24-28; SafetyFOCUS Winter on Feb. 13-24; and pre/post courses at Safety 2023 next June.

“It’s a terrific opportunity for safety and health experts to make a difference by contributing to the continuing education of their colleagues, advancing the industry and ultimately protecting workers everywhere,” said ASSP President Brad Giles, P.E., CSP, STS, FASSP, GIOSH. “It’s truly a rewarding experience.”

Courses range from half-days to three days and focus on business and leadership skills, fall protection, risk assessment and management, safety management systems and worker well-being. Prospective instructors must identify emerging issues, develop strategies for overcoming challenges and aim to expand attendee knowledge and professional skills.

A panel of ASSP members will anonymously evaluate all instructor proposals against the following criteria:

  1. Degree to which the proposed course meets ASSP’s program objectives.
  2. Instructor’s presentation skills and teaching experience.
  3. Interest and need for the topic within the safety and health profession.

Interested instructors should submit a separate application for each course, with a maximum of four per instructor. Please direct questions to ASSP’s professional development staff at safetyfocusinstructor@assp.org.

Course proposals for all three events must be submitted online by May 6. ASSP will notify successful applicants by email in early June.
