Welcome to the website of the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (BCRSP), the certification body for occupational health and safety professionals since 1976.

If you are a first time visitor, I extend a special welcome!

The BCRSP is a public interest, not-for-profit, ISO 17024 accredited and ISO 9001 certified organisation that grants the Canadian Registered Safety Professional (CRSP)® and the Canadian Registerd Safety Technician (CRST) to individuals who successfully complete the certification process through application assessment, and competency examination.

There are over 4900 certificants on the BCRSP roster. The BCRSP has granted the CRSP® certification to over 6000+ individuals since its incorporation in 1976. The  CRSP®  certification is widely recognized by employers as a benchmark for OHS positions and is regularly referenced as a minimum employment qualification.

The Canadian Registered Safety Technician (CRST) certification is a new certification that will be launching in 2018.  I am excited about this new certification process and look forward to welcoming the first individuals to achieve the CRST certification. 

If you have any questions or if you would like clarification on any issue related to the certification process, you are encouraged to contact the Board office at 905-567-7198; toll free at 888-279-2777

Thank you for visiting!
