Welcome to the Brazosport Safety Council

The Brazosport Safety Council (BSC) was created in an effort to provide contractors in the Brazosport area an efficient and cost effective method of training their personnel. BSC is a member of the Association of Reciprocal Safety Councils (ARSC), a nationwide reciprocal organization of safety councils that accept and transfer training data from other member councils. The primary focus of the BSC is to provide training and the skills necessary to work safely both on and off the job. We continually strive to improve our training methods and facilities to meet the needs of our clients.

Training Requirements

The Brazosport Safety Council requires companies to establish an account with the council and be in good standing prior to registering their employees for training. All trainees must be pre-registered and employed by a legitimate contractor company in order to attend training.

Social Security Verification is performed for all participants that attend any class. Make sure your employees have a current state/government photo ID with them when they check in.
