Fourteen people earned the “Safety Certification for Transportation Project Professionals” (SCTPP) credential in February, the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) Foundation announced. This is on top of the 55 in the “inaugural class” announced in late January. The certification is valid for three years.

Launched in late 2016, the SCTPP program is aimed at transportation project workers, supervisors, foremen, inspectors, managers, manufacturers and materials suppliers, designers, equipment operators and owners who could make an, industry-wide safety impact by learning core competencies necessary to identify and mitigate potentially life-threatening onsite risks.

The newest “Safety Certified Transportation Project Professionals” are:

• Adam Hill, safety coordinator, Road-Con Inc., West Chester, Pa.

• Bruce Drewes, instructional consultant, 3T Group, Boise, Idaho

• Doug Schultz, president, Herlihy Mid-Continent Company, Romeoville, Ill.

• Edward Mays, field safety coordinator, Barriere Construction LLC, Metairie, La.

• Francis B. Maline, project safety manager, Lane Construction, Westchester, Ill.

• Jose Manzano, safety inspector, CW Roberts Contracting, Tallahassee, Fla.

• Joseph Landino, safety director, Ajax Paving Industries Inc., Troy, Mich.

• Justin Templet, safety & claims coordinator, Barrierre Construction, Metairie, La.

• Keith Clay, safety manager, John R. Jurgensen Company, Hamilton, Ohio

• Matt Lunzman, superintendent, Hawkins Construction, Lincoln, Neb.

• Russell McElroy, senior safety supervisor, Lane Construction, Charlotte, N.C.

• Steven Ward, safety director, Advanced Workzone Services LLC, Muskogee, Okla.

• Tim Beguin, corporate safety director, Wiregrass Construction Co., Decatur, Ala.

The two-and-a-half hour exam contains up to 120 multiple-choice questions about: assessing project risks; creating project safety plans; implementing and conducting on-going evaluation of a site-specific operational safety plan; and conducting incident investigations. It has been designed to meet the rigorous protocols required for accreditation by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the International Organization for Standardization ISO/IEC 17024: “Conformity Assessment: General Requirements for Bodies Operating Certification of Persons.”

The ARTBA Foundation also said that the six courses available via its online learning center (OLC) are increasingly being utilized to help people prep for the exam.
