TURPA Website image
A professional membership organization dedicated to maintaining a high standard of integrity and professional practice for Toxics Use Reduction Planners (TURPs). A TURP is an environmental, safety, and/or process professional that has passed a uniform certification exam developed by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and has a few years of relevant education and experience. Once certified by DEP, TURPs can organize, prepare, write, and/or manage, but more importantly certify toxics use reduction plans for Massachusetts companies that are required to report under the Massachusetts Toxics Use Reduction Act (TURA).
