The purpose of the Southwest Chapter ASSE is to promote the advancement of the safety profession and safety professionals, and development of its members in the geographical area served. The Chapter was chartered by the national society in 1937. We are part of the society’s Region III.

Dallas, Collin, Cooke, Denton, Ellis, Fannin, Grayson, Hunt, Kaufman, Navarro, and Rockwall Counties. Our Student Section is located in Bryan County, Oklahoma, at Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Durant.
The Chapter members are professionals in the safety, health, environmental and related fields. Annual membership is approximately 550 members plus the Student Section of some 60-100 student members. Past highlights of the Chapter’s members and events are listed here.
The Chapter meets monthly from September through June; usually mid-day luncheons with a guest speaker.
