The Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) is proud to announce the Associate Safety Professional (ASP) will become an independent certification in the fourth quarter of 2014.

"BCSP strives to improve its certifications to advance the safety profession while providing its practitioners with more options," said the CEO of BCSP, Dr. Treasa Turnbeaugh, CSP, CET. "The ASP certification will enhance BCSP's vision to create a safer world through safety, health and environmental certification."

The ASP is currently a designation toward achieving the Certified Safety Professional (CSP) – the Gold Standard in safety certification. With this change, it will remain as the first of two exams to obtain the CSP, but will enable ASP credential holders to keep it as a certification.

"ASP certificants will need to meet Recertification requirements to demonstrate their competency, matching the Recertification rules of CSP," said the COO of BCSP, Guy Snyder. "The ASP certification and its Recertification requirements recognizes the certificants' work on continuous enhancement of their competency through additional education, research, or professional experiences."

To obtain the ASP certification, safety practitioners will need a minimum of a Bachelor's degree in any field or an Associate's in safety, health, environmental or a closely related field. At least one year of experience at a professional level with breadth and depth of safety duties is also required.


The Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) is recognized as the leader in high-quality credentialing for safety, health, and environmental practitioners. BCSP establishes standards for and verifies competency in professional safety practice and evaluates certificants for compliance with recertification requirements. BCSP also operates paraprofessional SH&E certifications that provide additional career paths for safety practitioners. Since 1969, over 40,000 individuals have achieved the CSP, OHST, CHST, STS, or CET credential. BCSP is a not-for-profit corporation chartered in Illinois with headquarters in Champaign.
