Ferri Named ASSP’s Safety Professional of the Year

The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) has named Abby Ferri, CSP, its 2022 Safety Professional of the Year. The risk management and safety consulting expert has been an ASSP member for 20 years and has helped advance occupational safety and health in many ways.

Ferri played a key role in a recent ASSP governance change that involved creating a diverse advisory group to replace the Society’s House of Delegates and enable the Board of Directors to fully govern the organization. She served on the Governance Task Force that researched association governance trends, interacted with ASSP members and developed the recommendations that were later adopted to strengthen the Society.

Over the past decade, Ferri has been a speaker at more than 100 regional, national and international events while appearing on dozens of safety and health podcasts. In 2020, she co-founded a podcast called “The Safety Justice League,” which has been influential in exploring a wide range of safety and health issues. It consistently ranks on Apple Podcasts’ Top 200 business and career charts.

Ferri led WISE from 2018-20 as the group’s administrator. Her continued involvement in WISE, including mentoring safety professionals and identifying future leaders, has increased the inclusion and advancement of women in the safety and health industry. In 2021, Ferri was named Safety Professional of the Year in four ASSP groups: WISE, Council on Practices and Standards, Region V and the Northwest Chapter.

Ferri is the author of two Kindle books, “The Safety Habit” published in 2020 and “The Safety Consultant’s Toolkit” published in 2021 that shares her knowledge of starting and running a safety consulting firm.

Ferri is a senior risk control consultant at Gallagher, which provides insurance, risk management and consulting services. She works with clients in construction, manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, education, real estate, hospitality and restaurants. She resides in Eden Prairie, MN, with her husband, Andrew, and daughter, Moselle.
