President’s Message – August 2019

Aug 13, 2019

As President of the American Society of Safety Professionals – South Florida Chapter (ASSP), allow me to introduce myself. My name is Bobby Glass and I’m currently the Director of Safety, Health, DOT and Environmental compliance for Centerline, Inc. based out of Palm City, Florida.  I’ve been an active member of ASSP since 1999 and have seen a lot of changes; however, the changes have been for the best and the entire ASSP community is striving. In addition, I’ve acted in various ASSP positions since 1999 and most recently Treasurer.

It’s my honor to represent our Chapter and, with doing so, I pledge to uphold the bylaws of our charter and to do my best to enhance our local Chapter on an on-going basis with our Team. Our Team has already established a tentative calendar of events through mid-year of 2019-2020. I ask that each of you reflect as to why you became a member of ASSP and take advantage of the benefits provided by not only our chapter but those of ASSP as a whole (e.g., mentoring, community involvement, online training, meetings, etc.). We hope that everyone will continue to attend the monthly Chapter meetings, open discussions and offer insight for opportunities for improvement whether it’s regarding our Chapter initiatives or the lessons you’ve learned and are able to share. I believe that our overall efforts will continue to benefit our members, communities and those that are actively considering a career in the safety field.

I look forward to working with each of you and hope to see you at our next scheduled meeting.


Bobby L. Glass CSMP, CA
