ASPHP frequently receives inquiries about equipment and consulting services. In an effort to answer those requests for information, we have created the SPHM Equipment and Consulting Services Resource directory. SPHM professionals can search for resources and information to optimize their practices and promote a culture of safety within their organizations. This space also offers a forum for manufacturers, vendors, consultants and related professionals to showcase the benefits of their SPHM products and services.
