Mississauga, ON – June 5, 2019 – The Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (BCRSP) held the inaugural writing of the Canadian Registered Safety Technician (CRST) certification examination in March 2019 and is pleased to announce 20 individuals have now been awarded the CRST certification.

The CRST certification was introduced in 2018 to support the evolving needs of industry. The CRST certification process requires individuals to meet qualification standards, including education and experience requirements, pass the CRST Examination, and stay up to date through a continuous professional development process. 

A CRST supports a safe working environment by maintaining OHS administrative processes, conducting training and using a range of state-of-the-art tools, processes and common practice solutions to OHS risks. They oversee and drive monitoring and compliance in relation to technical and behavioral risk controls. 

“Achieving certification is a milestone in an individuals’ career,” says Kevin Dawson, Chair of the BCRSP Governing Board. “Congratulations to the 20 individuals on their achievement and commitment to safe and healthy workplaces.”
