This year the Utah Chapter, ASSE would like to start using Social Networking. There are of course many options such as twitter, Facebook, etc. – however many employers block such sites on their network. As such we have chosen the more professional social networking site LinkedIn for use. LinkedIn is the world's largest professional network with 225 million members in over 200 countries and territories around the globe. LinkedIn’s mission is simple: connect the world's professionals to make them more productive and successful. When you join LinkedIn, you get access to people, jobs, news, updates, and insights that help you be great at what you do.

To sign up for your free LinkedIn account please click here: www.linkedin.com

Once you have set up your account you can start searching chapter members and other professionals that you know. Don’t forget to add the ASSE group to your profile to begin receiving news and updates.

About the American Society of Safety Engineers

Today, millions of people go to and return home from work safely every day due, in part, to the commitment of the occupational safety, health and environmental (SH&E) practitioners who work day in and day out identifying hazards and implementing safety advances in all industries and at all workplaces, thereby reducing workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses.

Founded in 1911, the Des Plaines, Illinois-based American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) is the oldest and largest safety organization and represents more than 30,000 SH&E practitioners committed to protecting people, property and the environment and are at the forefront of safety engineering, design, standards development, management and education in virtually every industry, governmental agency, labor and education. Presently, ASSE has 151 chapters, 56 sections and 65 student sections. There are also members in 64 countries including Mexico, Ecuador, Saudi Arabia, the United Kingdom, Australia, Kuwait and Egypt. ASSE members serve on over 40 safety and health standards committees including the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

ASSE and its members continue to work towards increasing workplace safety and health and raising awareness globally. Throughout history, the safety profession and safety professionals have attempted to improve working conditions. Through these efforts, many lives are saved each day. However, this work is not complete. Until each worker returns home in the same condition s/he came to work in, ASSE and its members still have a formidable task at hand.
