SASM has developed two designations for safety management in the manufacturing industry. The first, Safety Management Administrator (SMA), is designed for individuals who may not be safety personnel but who are tasked with the duty of administrating the safety management system for their firm.
The second, Manufacturing Safety Professional (MSP), is designed for individuals dedicated to becoming a safety manager in the manufacturing industry. The MSP program is intensive, multi-year and requires continuing education.
These designations indicate that the individual has knowledge in various manufacturing-related health and safety management skills and principles.
