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

Younger generations want to make a difference in the world and make an impact in the things that they do. I would say that being a safety professional is exactly that. Receiving the BCSP Foundation Scholarship has impacted my academic career significantly. As a non-traditional student, the cost of my academic career looms over me. Receiving this scholarship has helped me get five steps closer to reaching my dreams, and has propelled me through the remainder of my bachelor’s degree.
