Sustainability of EHS: Educating the Next Generation of Safety Professionals

BCSP examCore Videos Cropped

I was recently asked by the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) to assist them in the creation of video lectures regarding a wide range of subjects related to excellence in the practice of occupational safety and health in America’s workplaces. It is an honor to collaborate with the BCSP regarding this important project for the betterment of my professional colleagues and the effectiveness of the profession overall.  I was impressed with the technical capability (subject matter experts, videographers, and IT professionals) the BCSP has put together to give students a unique and enabling experience as they hone the knowledge and skills to live up the CSP designation they are pursuing.

The new educational system is the BCSP’s examCore™ on-line study aids. The system uses the latest advances in technology assisted learning to streamline the time and effort required to obtain one of the certifications from the BCSP.  It’s a long way from the pencil and paper exam I took to start my journey to the CSP!  Currently, the ASP prep course is in beta testing with the CSP, OHST and CHST in production.  You can learn more about examCore at: examcore.com.

Passing on the hard-won knowledge I have gained across a wide-range of topics related to EHS & Sustainability success is a pursuit I am passionate about.  It is partly why this website exists.  I was fortunate to have great professionals from the generations before me (Babyboomers and The Greatest Generation) who took me under their wings when I was a lowly grad student looking on in awe of their mastery of the profession.  I wanted so bad to be half as good as they were, and they were committed to see that I was twice a good as them!  While I am far from finished with my career, I am stepping in their shoes and working to support the next generation of EHS Pros as they stand on my generations shoulders to achieve greater mastery of the occupational world.   I think this work with the BCSP will be a big contributor.  I have been asked to assist them next with the CHST and OHST examCore™ modules as a subject matter expert and video lecturer. 

Looking forward to the next taping session!
