BCSP’s 2013 Annual Report is now online, and the information it contains shows impressive growth in safety, health and environmental (SH&E) certification.
More than 5,400 SH&E practitioners tested their knowledge in pursuit of a BCSP certification in 2013, a greater number than in any other year. The majority of those who sat for examinations were in pursuit of the CSP.
In the same year, over 4,700 applications were received. The total number of active applications indicate that about 6,000 safety professionals aimed to achieve a BCSP certification.
“The information in our 2013 Annual Report shows a growing recognition that protecting people, property, and the environment requires SH&E knowledge and skills, and that certification plays an important role in ensuring practitioners demonstrate competency in those areas,” says Dr. Treasa Turnbeaugh, CSP, CET, BCSP CEO. “The advances made are in part due to the efforts of the Board of Directors and staff, as well as the contribution of our certificants’ achievements. We are all dedicated to the advancement of the safety profession.”
Indicative of the growing recognition of the value of certification was the Associated General Contractors of America’s June 2013 endorsement of BCSP certifications.
