50 Years of Excellence in Safety Credentialing

Since 1969, the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) has been setting and certifying the technical competency criteria for safety, health, and environmental practitioners.

In that time, many joined us as pioneers, improving safety practice by meeting the challenge of achieving and maintaining quality, accredited safety certification—The Gold Standard.

As BCSP begins the second half of our first century as an organization, what we have built has rewarded us with many new and exciting opportunities to advance safety. As we head into the future, we will ensure no one is left behind. BCSP will continue to create the path forward.
