Sarah Carty becomes an Associate Safety Professional (ASP)
Sarah Carty, ASP, has completed all requirements for a Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) certification. This highly respected certification is awarded by BCSP to individuals who meet eligibility criteria and experience in the safety, health and, environmental (SH&E) discipline, and have passed an examination.
Safety issues have become more complex and today’s safety professional must continually be better qualified. BSCP credential holders are among the most highly trained, educated, and experienced individuals in the safety field. Having achieved a BCSP certification shows that the individual has mastered the core competency required for professional safety practice. BCSP’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Turnbeaugh, CSP, CET, comments that “It is critical to maintain competent individuals within the SH&E industry because of the impact they have on the safety of workers and the public.” A certificant must recertify every five years to maintain a certification.
BCSP is recognized as the leader in high-quality credentialing for safety, health, and environmental practitioners. BCSP establishes standards for and verifies competency in professional safety practice and evaluates certificants for compliance with recertification requirements. BCSP also operates paraprofessional SH&E certifications that provide additional career paths for safety practitioners. Since 1969, over 40,000 individuals have achieved the CSP, ASP, OHST, CHST, STSC, STS, or CET credential. BCSP is a not-for-profit corporation chartered in Illinois with headquarters in Indianapolis.

A local company engaged in manufacturing imported a small amount of a chemical substance defined under TSCA. Faced with a potential EPA enforcement action with penalties assessed for noncompliance under TSCA of up to $32,500 per day per violation, the company called SMG for help.
SMG analyzed the company’s current TSCA procedures and assisted the company in developing a proactive, cost-effective compliance procedure. SMG also facilitated a training program to educate employees about TSCA.
SMG worked with the company to develop mechanisms that assured adherence with the policies that were being implemented for compliance. Procedures to promptly correct any potential violations and prevent future violations were also put into place.
SMG was able to show that the company complied with the relevant TSCA regulations and was improving their TSCA policies and procedures to assure that future issues were less likely to occur. The company was not subjected to the proposed penalties and now has mechanisms in place to maintain TSCA compliance.
