Safety Trained Supervisor (STS) Sponsors certified the safety skills of over 750 of their employees in 2013, raising the number of current STS certificants who benefited from company sponsorship to over 5,000 persons.
Organizations which refer five or more people to the STS are eligible to join the STS Sponsorship Program. STS Sponsors partner with BCSP in the promotion of sound SH&E practice, and are recognized for their advocacy as Participating, Ruby, Emerald, and Diamond Sponsors based on the number of STS certificants they employ in a given year.
The growth of the program in 2013 was phenomenal. Two new sponsors, Idaho Power Company and PCL Construction Enterprises, made an amazing effort to reach the Ruby and Emerald classes of sponsorship in their first year of participation. Idaho Power Company referred 31 new STS certificants and PCL Construction Enterprises 55 new STS certificants.
The latest information on all STS Sponsors and the contributions they have made to strengthening supervisory safety practice can be found on the STS Sponsorship Program.
