For more than 100 years, we have supported occupational safety and health (OSH) professionals in their efforts to prevent workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities. We provide education, advocacy, standards development and a professional community to our members in order to advance their careers and the OSH profession as a whole.

ASSP Nigeria Chapter is building from its successful first, five professional development conferences (PDC) held previous years, which attracted hundreds of occupational safety and health professionals from across Africa and the world to discuss and learn about the latest industry trends and practices.

“The last five conferences was very multinational in scope and attracted speakers and attendees from many countries,” “We owe it to the public to ensure safety professionals are up to speed with the latest global practices and safety benchmarks in a changing global world.”

Larry Wilson of Safestart will give the Keynote address on March 28, 2019
