ARTBA Safety Certification Program Reaches Milestone

Home to the Industry’s Only Internationally-Accredited Safety Program puttingsafetyfirst.org

Bradley Middleton, a safety manager at Drill Tech Drilling and Shoring Inc., of Antioch, Calif., is the 400th industry professional to earn the Safety Certification for Transportation Project Professionals™ (SCTPP) credential, marking a major milestone in the program.

“I am excited to be able to use my training to pass the certification process and hold a Safety Certification for Transportation Project Professionals,” said Middleton. “The credential serves as a reaffirmation of my dedication to safety, and I hope more and more construction professionals continue to earn it.”

The SCTPP credential continues to gain traction within the transportation construction sector, with professionals from nearly 100 companies and agencies in 37 states and Washington, D.C. passing the exam.

Launched in fall 2016 by top industry executives and safety advocates via the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) Foundation, the SCTPP is designed to reduce or ideally eliminate the nearly 50,000 deaths and injuries each year on or near U.S. transportation infrastructure construction projects. It is aimed at workers, supervisors, foremen, inspectors, designers, planners, equipment operators, manufacturers, materials suppliers and owners who impact safety–ensuring they know the core competencies necessary to identify and mitigate potentially life-threatening on-site risks.

In May 2018, the SCTPP earned the “seal of approval” from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). It is the only internationally-accredited safety program in the transportation construction industry.

The milestone comes as major transportation construction contractors are calling on their industry peers to commit at least 25 employees annually to earn the SCTPP credential before the end of 2019, in 2020, and beyond. ARTBA Chairman Bob Alger, chairman of The Lane Construction Corporation; Ross Myers, chairman, and CEO of Allan Myers; and David Walls, president, and CEO of Austin Industries, together recently issued the challenge.  Myers and Walls co-chair the commission overseeing the program’s operations.

A complete list of the 415 entries, companies and public agencies with employees who have become “safety certified,” can be found here.

The ARTBA Foundation’s Safety Certification for Transportation Project Professionals™ Safety Certification Program (SCTPP) program was established in 2016:

Its vision:

“To ensure the safety and well-being of construction workers, motorists, truck drivers, pedestrians and their families by making transportation project sites worldwide zero-incident zones.”

The program was developed by the senior executives from America’s leading transportation design and construction firms, senior federal and state transportation agency officials, and top labor union officials.

Its mission:

“To make safety top-of-mind for all professionals involved in the planning, design, management, materials delivery and construction of transportation projects from inception through completion.”

This is achieved by providing and encouraging an accredited certification program to the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission (ISO/IEC 17024) Conformity Assessment—General Requirements for Bodies Operating Certification of Persons as administered by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

SCTPP is the transportation construction industry’s only internationally-accredited safety program.
