Today, nearly 1300 sales and marketing representatives in the safety equipment industry are Qualified Safety Sales Professionals. They have broadened their technical expertise in health and safety. They have gained an understanding of the complex regulations imposed by OSHA, EPA and other agencies. And most important, they have become more valuable to their customers and their companies.
To become a Qualified Safety Sales Professional, a sales or marketing professional must complete an intensive, weeklong training course sponsored by ISEA. Students learn principles and practices of occupational health and safety; fundamentals of industrial hygiene, risk management, safety engineering, health and safety regulations, and workers comp. They are exposed to the full range of safety equipment and safety practices for the workplace. They learn how to integrate health and safety equipment into their customers' needs.
Participants who successfully complete the course and the QSSP competency exercises receive a certificate of recognition, and the right to use the QSSP designation. Click here for more details on QSSP's value to the customer.
