National Association of Safety Professionals
NASP initially offered workplace safety in-house training on a contract basis to business and industry, train-the-trainer courses for safety professionals, specialized training for those responsible for OSHA compliance and safety in the workplace, and consultative services to business and industry. Independent study courses were developed to allow those who could not attend classroom courses to still receive NASP training. NASP now provides professional certifications, classroom training, online training, site-specific training as well as a full array of safety and environmental consulting services.
The purposes of Certified Safety Director (CSD) and Master Safety Professional (MSP) programs are to establish international standards for certification in the workplace safety profession, to provide recognition of qualified individuals, and to afford a guarantee to employers that certified personnel have attained stated education and experience qualifications. The ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB) recently granted initial accreditation for NASP’s Certified Safety Director® (CSD®) and Master Safety Professional® (MSP®) credentials, effective June 15, 2021, under the ISO/IEC 17024:2012 Standard General Requirements for Bodies Operating Certification of Persons.
A CSD is involved in problem solving and application of strategy. Their advice is based on conceptual and technical knowledge mediated by training and experience, analysis of evidence and critical thought. They understand how to use and access the evidence base and value professional collaboration. They are capable of working with minimal supervision and usually give direction to others.
An MSP is an individual with high-level specialist and strategic skills. They are likely to be involved in the development and implementation of a comprehensive facility-wide or corporate safety and health program and are influential with senior management and policymakers. Their perspective embraces the broader organizational and social context.
