Certified Safety Professionals and Industrial Hygienists must be familiar with a set of ethical behaviors and values determined by the certifying board, but familiarity is not the same as adhering to those ethics. Even when referring to the Boards’ ethical standards there are lapses and mindsets which can trap even the most accomplished professional. This webinar will alert you to some common traps of unethical behaviors and how to apply the ethics set down by the Board of Certificated Safety Professionals (BCSP) and the Board for Global EHS Credentialing (BGC) to your professional life.
Upon completion, participants will be able to:
- Recognize BGC and BCSP ethical standards
- Name examples of traps and self-deception which are used to avoid following ethical standards
- Examine occurrences of ethical lapses and how they impacted outcomes
