Who We Are
Safety, and the people dedicated to preserving it, are the fabric of a healthy and prosperous society. Prevention from harm and security of persons are fundamental to the human experience. While often without witness, safety is the essential link that secures our future, and in its absence, we risk loss of life, health, and prosperity.
The true value of the safety profession lies in the practitioners’ dedication to developing thoughtful solutions to reduce risk and commitment to mitigate potential adverse events. In doing so, they secure our workplace, community and society by enabling and empowering others to fulfill their role in an environment that values all life.About Us

Dan Peterson said “…people save people.” Safety professionals save people everyday on the job. But it also takes the participation of the full workforce to keep everyone safe. The BCSP Foundation is an opportunity for all of society to contribute to people saving people whether it is through supporting professional advancement of those already involved in the field of safety, assisting in the development of new tools and research findings, or in educating up and coming workers through the youth safety institute. BCSP has always been about advancing the safety professional, but today more than ever it is also about advancing the field of safety and protecting the public. We are about putting “people saving people” into practice in a demonstrable fashion.
