Defining the OSH Profession

IMG_0009As part of its ongoing efforts to define the OSH profession, ASSE recently conducted a 1-day workshop with more than 25 subject-matter experts to develop a minimum set of learning outcomes for undergraduate degree programs.

The group’s exercises focused on identifying key knowledge domains, establishing working definitions of those domains; and crafting knowledge/skills/abilities statements for those domains.

ASSE’s other activities in this area include working with its partners in the International Network of Safety and Health Practitioner Organizations to develop a global competency framework for OSH practice.
