BOP/BOPR Price Increase

To All DVSC Customers,

The Delaware Valley Safety Council is a member of the Association of Reciprocal Safety Councils (ARSC). ARSC is an organization comprised of twenty-four safety councils nationwide that is responsible for the Basic Orientation Plus® and the Basic Orientation Plus® Refresher safety training programs. These programs have saved lives, prevented injuries and saved significant costs for the petrochemical industry and additional participating industries since its inception in 1997.

In 2016, ARSC rolled out an updated and upgraded version of both BOP and BOPR. Along with other across-the-board price increases that all companies experience, DVSC has helped fund these upgrades. Additionally, we now incur increased royalty rates per training unit, along with absorbing the costs associated with the new BOP workbook.

Consequently, as of May 1, 2017, DVSC will be increasing the price of the Basic Orientation Plus® to $80, and the price of the Basic Orientation Plus® Refresher to $65. This $5 increase will be our first in four and a half years.

At the same time, the Board of Trustees, with the goal of adding value, is instituting a new opt-in Membership Program that will include the following:

  • $300 Annual Dues;
  • Extended Credit with invoicing available;
  • Discounted BOP and BOPR ($5.00 discount);
  • 50% Room Rental Discount (New Jersey facility);
  • Additional Member Benefits are under development.

Becoming a member of the Delaware Valley Safety Council is easy. Simply complete the Member Application Form and return to lisa.iannuzzi@dvsconline.org or mail to 510 Heron Drive, Suite 210, Swedesboro, NJ 08085. With receipt of your completed application, along with the annual dues, all member benefits will be activated immediately for your company.

Please note: If you currently are receiving invoices for services, you must be a member or must submit a written purchase order for invoicing to continue. All accounts that have not joined as members after May 1, 2017, or do not have written purchase orders on file, will be converted to require payment at the time of service. There will be no change to the currently acceptable forms of payment.

DVSC recognizes that not every company will benefit from membership. Regardless, DVSC will continue to serve your needs as diligently and professionally as we have in the past. We appreciate your loyalty as we strive to continue to meet your expectations and to improve our service for all customers.
