In absence of any professional organization catering the needs of safety practitioners in Pakistan, strong desire was shown by HSE professionals to establish an ASSP Chapter in Pakistan. It was developed under the guidance of ASSP Ambassador, Mr. Jitendra Patel in USA with the remote support of Ashok Garlapati, ASSP Ambassador in Kuwait.
Pakistan has lot of potential to develop its industrial and agricultural sector subject to improvement of security situation in the country. Security situation has started improving after withdrawal of international defense forces from Afghanistan. China has shown its keen interest in developing economic corridor for having access to sea port of Gawadar, Pakistan in Arabian Sea and to invest on communication infrastructure and energy projects. This will open huge economic activity and job opportunities for safety professionals. Government is promoting and encouraging participation in various national and international events by the industry and by leading a Government-industry business delegation to the identified Exhibitions and Conferences around the World.
