President’s Corner


President’s Message

Welcome to the Puget Sound Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) website. Founded in 1911, ASSE is the world’s oldest professional safety society. ASSE promotes the expertise, leadership and commitment of its members, while providing them with professional development, advocacy and standards development. ASSE members have direct access to over 36,000 safety professionals through 150 chapters, 8 regions, 40 sections and 70 student sections around the world. Networking enables ASSE members to share their knowledge and exchange best practices with other industry experts.

The Puget Sound Chapter was chartered in 1944 and has three sections, Mt. Baker and Olympia, and a student section at Central Washington University. Currently, there are over 540 members who belong to the chapter or one of the sections. Chapter meetings are held on the third Wednesday of every month (except for May, July and August).


We hope to see you at the next Chapter event!
