The International Society of Safety Professionals (ISSP) Announces "Career Track" a Development Framework for Safety Professionals
Date:11/26/2013

Alexandria, Virginia (PRWEB) November 26, 2013

Every day, high-risk enterprises around the world lose valuable human and financial resources to safety related incidents. The intervention by trained safety professionals cannot only help avoid costly mistakes, but can also lead to the improvement of key organizational production processes leading to increased sustainability and profitability for any high risk venture. Human error accounts for the majority of on the job related accidents, as advances in engineering have greatly improved the reliability of the machinery and materials in modern enterprises. D. Smith, President of the International Society of Safety Professionals, a non-profit organization, intent on changing the face of the safety profession, said “we have seen a transformation in safety over the past few decades and we must begin training future safety professionals for the challenges of tomorrow”.

Advances in technology have allowed many new competitors to enter both global and local markets. This puts new players on the field; increasing pressures on existent businesses to produce more which in turn leads to increased safety risks in many industries from energy production to construction to transportation and security.

A path to professional competence in a new generation of safety professionals demands a comprehensive set of knowledge and skills regarding both regulatory and industry-specific safety risks as well as the ability to forge and maintain high trust at all levels of the organization. “The checklist safety mentality is a thing of the past”, Smith says, “it takes active participation by every member of the team, from the CEO to the guy pushing the broom to identify both present and emergent conditions for loss in our fast-paced, ever-changing, multicultural workplaces.”

The society plans to be a key driver in shaping that competency for businesses by providing a clear career path and professional development opportunities for all levels of safety professionals from students to seasoned managers.

The ISSP is already an industry leader, rapidly increasing membership and bringing together safety professionals from public and private high-risk organizations worldwide to share and develop best practices and professional standards. The society is finalizing plans for a key Human Factors in Safety seminar, scheduled for June of next year. More information on this and other professional development opportunities can be found on the society’s website at http://www.isspros.org
