ASPHP  – a United Voice

Membership in the ASPHP is a unique opportunity to create something of value.  The field of safe patient handling and mobility is populated with many types of persons who are passionate about the practice and the profession.  Help us to discuss, educate and otherwise address SPHM issues in acute care, long term care, home care and ambulatory care.  We are clinicians, educators, researchers, ergonomists and others that care deeply for the safety and health of our workers and patients/residents.

Any professionals looking to elevate their SPHM program and clinical application through the use of SPHM equipment, e.g:  PT’s, OT’s, RN’s, Safety professionals should consider joining ASPHP and become certified. 

We make a concerted effort to keep those who are interested informed and educated about legislative activities at the state and federal levels.  We actively advocate for our cause.
