Certified Safety Professionals

What Is a Certified Safety Engineer?

A Certified Safety Engineer, or Certified Safety Professional (CSP), ensures that a job-site is hazard-free while guaranteeing employers provide optimal and up-to-code working conditions for their employees. A Certified Safety Engineer will work directly with building owners and contractors to ensure the proper fall protection services are in place and being utilized correctly. These professional safety engineers also ensure that all products, materials, and buildings comply with health and safety regulations while examining current safety programs and helping to create and implement an improved plan.
