Kestrel Senior Consultant Jake Taylor was recently elected President of the Badgerland Chapter of the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP). ASSP is a global association for occupational safety and health professionals. For more than 100 years, the Society has provided education, standards development, advocacy, and a professional community to support the advancement of members and the safety profession.
“I’m looking forward to working with the ASSP Badgerland Board of Directors to continue providing an excellent safety resource for member companies,” said Taylor. “We have some new ideas and plans that we are excited to roll out over the coming year.”
Taylor will assume his role as President in July 2019. He brings over 20 years of management experience, particularly in the areas of EHS and risk management, to this position. He has vast experience developing and implementing comprehensive, corporate-wide safety programs. Taylor also serves as a Responsible Distribution Adviser for the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD), where he provides in-depth support and assistance with the design and implementation of members’ Responsible Distribution programs and verifications.
The Badgerland Chapter of ASSP was chartered in 1995 and has over 100 members. Its geographical boundaries are southern Wisconsin—from LaCrosse to Watertown. The Badgerland Chapter strives to give members an opportunity to learn from a technical presentation or a tour of a local business and their safety, environmental and health programs.
