NEBOSH Qualification Becomes TSP Qualified Equivalent Program
Friday, 22 April 2022
The National Board for Occupational Safety and Health’s NEBOSH International and National Diplomas for Occupational Health and Safety Management Professionals have been reviewed by the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) and approved as Transitional Safety Practitioner (TSP) Qualified Equivalent Programs (QEP), providing the program’s graduates the opportunity to apply with BCSP for the TSP designation.
The TSP meets the credential eligibility requirement for the Certified Safety Professional® (CSP®), the “gold standard” in safety certification, allowing those who hold the designation to waive the Associate Safety Professional® (ASP®) certification examination and sit for the CSP upon meeting all other requirements. Holding the TSP demonstrates accomplishment and commitment to professional development.
“We welcome NEBOSH’s exceptional safety programs and those holding its diploma,” says the CEO of BCSP, Christy Uden, CAE, IOM. “Those who complete a program from a QEP have demonstrated a set of knowledge and skills that deserve recognition, and BCSP is committed to further supporting their dedication to professional safety practice.”
A TSP is a program in safety, health, and environmental (SH&E) practice that meets BCSP standards for participation and demonstrates a substantial match to the ASP exam blueprint. Any person having completed the diploma programs from the National Examination Board for Occupational Safety and Health’s (NEBOSH) International and National Diplomas for Occupational Safety and Health may apply for the TSP designation.
