May 8 is 2013's Occupational Safety and Health Professional (OSHP) Day. The American Society of Safety Engineers added OSHP Day to its North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) week in 2006. The Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) enjoys OSHP Day and is happy to participate in the effort to recognize and celebrate the lifesaving efforts of safety, health and environmental (SH&E) professionals.
The work of a safety professional isn't always noticed. Many people think of safety as simply the absence of workplace incidents, but it is much more than that: it is the result of SH&E practitioners' building a safer workplace by actively removing occupational hazards and engaging others in safe practices. The safety professional creates safety every day he or she is on the job, showing commitment to a career dedicated to the protection of people, property, and the environment.
This OSHP Day, we hope you join us in appreciating the work of our amazing safety professionals.
