Mississauga, ON, July 17, 2014 – The Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (BCRSP) recently released an updated Blueprint for the Canadian Registered Safety Professional Examination (CRSPEX Blueprint). The CRSPEX Blueprint will come into effect for the CRSP® examination administration in February 2015. The CRSPEX Blueprint was developed to guide those involved in the development of the Canadian Registered Safety Professional (CRSP)® examination and to provide the public (e.g. examinees, educators, administrators) with practical information about the examination.

A notable change to the 2015 CRSPEX Blueprint is that it is now composed of nine domain categories instead of eleven. The two previous domain areas of Accident Theory and Environmental Practices have had their individual competencies reallocated amongst the nine domain areas found in the 2015 CRSPEX Blueprint. These domain areas are:

1.    Applied Safety Fundamentals (Formerly Safety Techniques and Technology)
2.    Auditing
3.    Ergonomics
4.    Fire Prevention and Protection
5.    Health and Wellness
6.    Law and Ethics
7.    Management Systems (Formerly Occupational Health Safety and Environment Systems)
8.    Occupational Hygiene
9.    Risk Management
