Partners in Safety

It’s a team effort. And we’ve got a great team.

Affiliate Details

ASA supports the needs of multiple industries, setting a high standard of worker readiness and training throughout Alaska. Strong industry support and collaboration has helped ASA foster strategic partnerships with other industry-recognized organizations, such as the Association of Reciprocal Safety Councils (ARSC) and the Houston Area Safety Council (Texas). We are also a proud member of the National Safety Council.

Many ASA training courses offer reciprocity with other ARSC-affiliated safety councils, meaning our training is standardized, recognized, delivered and accepted in areas throughout the United States. Through agreements with Alaska’s operator companies, ASA is able to accept training delivered by other official ARSC member councils. Reciprocity reduces training-related costs and shortens the overall timeline required to mobilize a company’s crew.

For more information about the value of reciprocity, please read the white paper published earlier this year: The Association of Reciprocal Safety Councils and the Value of Reciprocity.
