The Certified Utility Safety Professional (CUSP) certification is the only program that offers safety credentials to utilities, related contractors and communication providers. Created by the Utility Safety & Ops Leadership Network (USOLN), the CUSP credential provides industry-wide professional recognition as a utility safety professional and provides employers the assurance of an individual’s broad knowledge, skills and abilities in the utility work environment when hiring or promoting.
