A Message from the Chair of the Board of Governors

Welcome to the website of the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (BCRSP), the certification body for the occupational health and safety (OHS) profession since 1976.  If you are a first-time visitor to the BCRSP website, I extend a special welcome!

BCRSP strives to advance the body of knowledge, the competency of the profession, and the value our certificants bring to society. The BCRSP grants the CRSP® and CRST® certifications to individuals who successfully complete the certification process through application assessment, interview, and examination. The Board governs its certificants in order that the public interest may be served and protected.
