Posted - Aug 10, 2015

For more than 50 years, ASSE’s Professional Safety journal has been sharing the latest technical knowledge in SH&E—information that is constantly being developed through research and on-the-job experience. Each issue delivers practical guidance, techniques and solutions to help OSH professionals identify hazards, protect people, prevent injuries, improve work environments and educate management that investing in safety is a sound business strategy.

Full-issue PDFs of Professional Safety (from January 2005 forward) are now available to members through ASSE’s Members Only website. Each file contains interactive links to help members navigate through the file. We’ve also included links to ASSE, regulatory agencies and other sources, and the journal’s advertisers. A reader simply needs to mouse over a link to be redirected.
