Welcome to the Arkansas Chapter of ASSE!

The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) was founded October 14, 1911, in New York City, with 62 members. Originally named the United Society of Casualty Inspectors, its philosophy was to promote "harmonious action in safety work and educate members in all matters relating to industrial safety and accident prevention." Throughout its growth, this non-profit organization has dedicated itself to advancing the safety profession and enhancing the knowledge and capabilities of safety practitioners.

ASSE has played a key role in the development of many important national programs and standards. Society members have served on federal committees, supported key safety and health legislation, and sponsored safety awareness and professional development activities.

In 1993, ASSE celebrated another milestone in its growth when staff moved into the headquarters to 25,000 square feet and provides space for continued Society growth, including office space, committee meeting space, a resource center and classrooms for on-site seminars. This expansion is part of ASSE's continuing efforts to anticipate and plan for growing membership needs.
