Why pursue a Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (CRSP®) designation?
The CRSP® designation “is considered a benchmark in the [Occupational Health & Safety] profession and the designation of choice for Canadian OHS professionals,” states the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals.
With the CRSP® designation you may raise your career potential in the field of occupational health and safety by earning the nationally recognized industry standard for OHS practitioners, officers, inspectors, and more.
Moreover, the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals suggests that, “Many employers prefer or require applicants for OHS positions to hold the CRSP® designation…” and suggest that CRSPs are typically “sought for their expertise” and have the “best opportunities for career advancement.”
CRSP® education requirements
