American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) Senior Vice President of Safety & Education Brad Sant has earned the Associate Safety Professional (ASP) credential from the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP), which establishes standards and certifies competency criteria in professional safety practice.

The responsibilities of safety professionals continue to expand, requiring continued investment in their base of knowledge. BCSP certifications are internationally accredited by the highest of qualifications set by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

These include making worksite assessments to determine risks, potential hazards and how to control them, evaluating risks and hazard control measures, investigating incidents, maintaining and evaluating incident and loss records, and preparing emergency response plans.
