(Z490) OSH TRAINING The ANSI/ASSP Z490.1 standard provides guidance on how to manage overall safety training programs, as well as criteria for developing training that incorporates adult learning principles. The ANSI/ASSP Z490.2 standard provides guidance on accepted practices specifically for e-learning in safety, health and environmental training programs. To learn more, visit Safety Training (Z490).

ASSP is also the administrator of the U.S. technical advisory groups for two international standards: ⚠️ ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems ⚠️ ISO 31000 Risk Management Next, we'll briefly discuss these international standards.

ASSP has also taken a new step to help curb the risk of workplace incidents involving active shooters and armed assailants. This was done by publishing the consensus-based Active Shooter Technical Report. The report provides recommendations from safety experts on how a business in any industry can better protect itself in advance of such an incident.
