OSHA and the Board of Certified Safety Professionals Form Alliance to Provide Safety and Health Information to Certification Holders
WASHINGTON, DC – The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) recently formed an alliance to provide BCSP certification holders and other practitioners with information and guidance to protect workers’ safety and health.
During the two-year agreement, BCSP will work with OSHA to engage safety and health professionals and their employers in Agency outreach initiatives, such as the Safe + Sound Campaign, and the National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction. BCSP will also contribute in the development of OSHA resources to assist small and medium-sized employers in identifying situations that may benefit from a safety and health professional’s expertise, and finding the right professional to help.
