Jerry Davis, assistant professor in Auburn University's Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, was recently appointed to the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) editorial review board. As a member of the board, Davis will work to ensure that the society's main journal, Professional Safety, continues to meet the needs of ASSE members and its content provides a high level of service. Davis' term will expire in June 2012.

ASSE was founded in 1911 and is the oldest and largest professional safety organization. With a membership of over 32,000, the society has 151 chapters and 58 student sections. ASSE members manage, supervise and consult on safety, health and environmental issues. The society is concerned with issues in industry, insurance, government and education.

With more than 50 years of publication, Professional Safety has been informing ASSE members of the latest technology in safety, heath and environmental issues that evolve through research and job experience. The journal's purpose is to give readers practical instruction and solutions to help identify hazards, prevent injuries, improve work environments and provide protection and education management in the importance of safety.
