Robert and Terry Weston earn Certified Mine Safety Professional Designation
Please join the Center for Business and Industry in commending Robert and Terry Weston for recently earning their Certified Mine Safety Professional (CMSP) designation. The Certified Mine Safety Professional Certification Board (CMSPCB) governs the Certified Mine Safety Professional (CMSP) Program and administers the CMSP examination.

The CMSP designation indicates to CBI clients that the Weston’s have command of a body of knowledge and experience demonstrated through rigorous testing. But it also symbolizes a depth of commitment to the profession, and a desire to be the very best in the field. The designation is respected not only among practitioners of mine safety, but also in the broader mining profession.

Robert and Terry’s role as safety professionals is to demonstrate and advise CBI clients on the daily demands of inspecting and assessing risk, taking corrective action, assisting organizational management in identifying health and safety applications and staying abreast of an ever-increasing burden of regulatory compliance.
