One of Cyma Builders & Construction Managers’ up and coming Superintendents, Erik Settelen, successfully passed the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP), Safety Trained Supervisor in Construction (STSC) Exam on March 1st, 2017. The STSC is a nationally recognized third party safety certification for those with supervisor responsibilities in construction. In the past twenty years, the responsibilities of safety professionals have expanded. Safety issues have become more complex and today’s safety professionals must be continually better qualified. BCSP credential holders are among the most highly trained, educated, and experienced individuals in the safety field. Currently, the BCSP has only 6,000 individuals who actively hold STSC certification.
Erik has been a Carpenter and Superintendent with the Cyma Builders & Construction Managers for 3 years and a member of the Local 167 and local 1462 Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters for 6 years. Mike Royce, Sr. comments, “Erik is very interested in safety and shows this on a daily basis, he is proactive with the pre-task safety planning effort and is very helpful in completing our client’s Safe Permits to Work, he has reached out to contractors in a positive way that has produced better JSAs earlier in the process.” Mike Royce, Sr. is a Construction Safety Specialist supporting the projects and sites that Erik supervises.
