The ISEA recently launched a restructured QSSP curriculum as part of an “updated course management system and technology upgrade.” The revised curriculum provides ongoing knowledge development to support safety professionals in consultative sales roles, helping to maintain high standards and to spread pertinent knowledge industry-wide.

The goal is to empower students to discuss various management techniques that relate to safety in the work environment, how to recognize and evaluate hazards that might be encountered, and how to integrate safety products and procedures.

The training program includes both lectures and hands-on exercises, all designed to offer understanding about the types of protective safety equipment that is available and specific information about proper use. Each class is limited to 40 participants, and taught by acknowledged experts with a combined safety experience of more than 100 years. Participants must demonstrate their understanding of the principles by passing a competency test prior to receiving the QSSP designation.

Even the most challenging topics are presented in an understandable way, according to students who note that faculty members provide “real-world safety knowledge” that helps them understand the breadth of responsibilities involved in a safety program.

Students appreciate not only the faculty expertise, but they frequently cite “great mentoring” and support as outstanding benefits of the QSSP course. After completing the course, graduates feel empowered to discuss the proper use and selection of safety equipment at “an elevated level.”
