Julie A. Waltz, RCI Safety, Becomes Associate Safety Professional®

Date Posted: February 18, 2014

Champaign, IL—Julie A. Waltz has completed all requirements to obtain the designation of Associate Safety Professional (ASP).

This highly respected designation is awarded to individuals who meet academic requirements and have passed the first of two rigorous examinations.

Upon passing the first examination, individuals receive the interim designation of ASP to indicate their progress toward the Certified Safety Professional® (CSP®).

The first examination covers basic and applied sciences, safety program management and evaluation, equipment and facilities, fire prevention and protection, environmental aspects, system safety, and product safety.

Certified Safety Professionals specialize in protecting workers, the public, property, and the environment by identifying, evaluating, and controlling hazards.

The ASP must complete professional safety experience requirements and pass the Comprehensive Practice examination to obtain the CSP certification.

Steven Schoolcraft, BCSP Examination Director, said, "Becoming a CSP elevates a safety professional to the top of his or her field."

The Board of Certified Safety Professionals, governed by 13 directors with seven membership organizations, establishes standards for and verifies minimum competency in professional safety practice.

BCSP also evaluates CSPs for compliance with re-certification requirements.

Since 1969, almost 20,000 individuals have achieved the Certified Safety Professional certification.

Currently, more than 11,000 hold the CSP.

BCSP is a nationally accredited, non-profit corporation chartered in Illinois, with headquarters in Champaign.
