New STSC6 Blueprint to go into Effect in Late 2016

Published on Wednesday, March 23, 2016

The Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) has released a new Safety Trained Supervisor Construction (STSC) blueprint, which will apply to the STSC6 examination expected to be released near the end of 2016.

BCSP completed a validation study of the STSC in 2015. Validation studies are conducted to ensure the subject material in examinations are relevant to current practice. After conferring with industry leaders and evaluating the topics covered, a new blueprint was developed for the next version of the STSC examination, the STSC6. The new blueprint may be found on BCSP's STSC webpage. A summary of the changes to go into effect with the new examination is included.

"The STSC6 will soon go through a beta test so that the updated version is of the highest quality. We will send an invitation to participate in the beta examination to eligible candidates in April," said BCSP's Examination Director, Susan Gould, CSP, ASP, OHST, CHST, STSC. "We appreciate candidates who participate in our beta tests, and will include an incentive in the beta test invitation."

The current STSC5 examination will be replaced by the new, STSC6 examination expected to be released near the end of 2016.
