ASSE Announces New Practice Specialty
August 28, 2008

The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) recently announced the establishment of the Fire Protection Practice Specialty (PS) due to the growth in this area for safety and health professionals. Prior to its new status as a PS, the Fire Protection group was a branch of the ASSE Engineering Practice Specialty.

In order for a branch to become an ASSE practice specialty, the branch has to have at least 500 members and have published three newsletters in a previous year. A branch also has to have a chair and vice chair and a strategic plan in order to be considered for practice specialty status.

ASSE now has 14 practice specialties, which include academics, construction, engineering, environment, fire protection, healthcare, industrial hygiene (with the ergonomics branch), international, management (with the hospitality, human resources and manufacturing branches), mining, public sector, risk management and insurance (with the training and communications branch), and transportation (with the oil and gas branch).
