Upon receiving his award, MacCollum stated "I am overwhelmed with the great honor of receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Board of Certified Safety Professionals. In its short 45 years of existence, BCSP, as it towers far above my 62 years in safety, has given safety an international professional identity. BCSP made a giant step forward by incorporating an ethic of diversity of knowledge into every discipline of science. BCSP 's acceptance of expertise from every field of learning has promoted safety as an essential for the well being of all humanity. As just one of over 25,000 CSPs, I offer my thanks to BCSP for making safety a meaningful profession."

Each of the award recipients contributed a great deal to the safety, health, and environmental (SH&E) profession. We thank all who submitted nominations and encourage future submissions
