Leading the Way in Workplace Safety Training
The National Association of Safety Professionals is a non-profit membership organization providing training, consultative services, and third-party certifications that validate knowledge, skills and abilities in the area of workplace safety.
The primary mission of NASP is to provide safety professionals with innovative training opportunities and professional certification to assist them in carrying out their safety related functions with confidence and proven competence.
NASP was formed in 2000 by a group of American safety professionals. These men and women were safety trainers, consultants, and safety directors who wanted to provide cost effective workplace safety training and consulting to business and industry. The founders also desired to provide professional credentials to safety professionals who were largely self-taught, trained on the job, or educated by independent study. Today our roles include people from every background: from those trained and educated unconventionally to those holding safety related PhDs; from the part-time safety committee member to the international corporate safety director.
