ASSE's 100th Anniversary

The American Society of Safety Engineers will celebrate its 100th Anniversary in 2011. Founded in 1911 as the United Association of Casualty Inspectors, the Society was formed in the wake of tragic events such as the March 1911, Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire in New York City where 146 young girls and women lost their lives in a workplace tragedy that drew the attention to the need for workplace safeguards and regulations. As its 100th anniversary nears the 30,000 plus members of ASSE, the world鈥檚 oldest and largest professional safety organization, look forward to commemorating 100 years of dedicated service to workplace safety and health.

To commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the Society, we look forward to:

  • Celebrating the accomplishments and professionalism of its members
  • Building on its leadership in protecting people property and the environment and
  • Launching its vision for the future of the safety profession
