There are many opportunities for students to participate in professional organizations on and off campus. Our advisory board includes members of these professional organizations who are often guest speakers in our classes. Membership in these professional organizations is not a requirement. However, job opportunities are often made available through networking with other members.
|In addition to a Student Section located at CWU, there are four ASSE chapters in the region: Puget Sound, Columbia-Willamette, Inland Northwest, and Lower Columbia Basin.|
|The Northwest Chapter of System Safety Society does not have a separate website.|
|Puget Sound Area Safety Summit is another organization that supports safety professionals in the Puget Sound area.|
|The Puget Sound chapter of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society|
There are several professional certification organizations relating to safety and health practice. Many job opportunities have professional certification as a condition of employment or as a hiring preference.
|The Board of Certified Safety Professionals is the organization that manages the Certified Safety Professional (CSP).||The American Board of Industrial Hygiene is the organization that oversees the Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH).|
