EMIRATES Institute of Engineering & Technology (EIET) www.eiosh com EMIRATES Profile 9 The primary mission of the National Association of Safety Professionals is to provide safety professionals with innovative training opportunities and certification to assist them in carrying out their safety related functions with confidence while assuring a high level of competence. The NASP was formed in 2000 by a group of 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.
