Code of Ethics

The BCCSA has adopted a Code of Ethics for the Concrete Pump Certification Program, that exemplifies the professional conduct that is expected of a Concrete Pump Certified Operator (CPCO).

The Code of Ethics is as follows:

In my occupation, I will conduct myself in a manner:

  • So as to place the safety and welfare of others associated with my work above all other considerations,
  • So as to protect and preserve nearby general public property and the environment, and,
  • So to be free of bias with regard to religion, ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, and disability.

Furthermore, in connection with my work and my dealings with the BCCSA, I will:

  • Make management and appropriate personnel aware promptly if I have any safety concerns relating to the work that I am preforming or which I am involved:
  • Not knowingly violate any safety-related regulations, warnings, or instructions set forth by WSBC, CSA Z 151-17, or equipment manufactures; and,
  • Not mislead, misrepresent or knowingly deceive others concerning my experience or the capabilities of myself or the equipment I am operating or with which I am working.

In addition, in my dealings with the BCCSA, I will:

  • Provide accurate and complete information and abide by BCCSA the Concrete Pump Certification Program policies and procedures, including this Code of Ethics, as they may be updated from time to time;
  • Not act dishonestly or unfairly in order to gain advantage, or provide another with an advantage, in any dealings with the BCCSA;
  • Cooperate fully and completely with any administrative inquiries or investigations by the BCCSA; and,
  • Not misrepresent or misuse and BCCSA Certification Identity Card, or BCCSA or CPCO acronyms and logos, or any registered trademark or other intellectual property of the BCCSA; and I understand that I must return the Certification Identity Card to the BCCSA immediately if required to do so.

Concrete Pump Certified Operators who intentionally of knowingly violate any provision of the Code of Ethics will be subject to action by a peer review panel, the Ethics and Discipline Committee, which may result in suspension or revocation of certification.
