Professional Certifications in Health and Safety
The Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) is recognized as one of the leaders of high-quality credentials for health, safety, and environmental (HSE) professionals. Safety professionals are responsible for identifying hazards in the workplace and on job sites and evaluating these hazards for their potential to harm or cause injury to people, property, or the environment. Safety professionals can work in several disciplines and industries, and the BCSP offers credentials for various safety positions. Since it's inception in 1969, the BCSP has issued their health and safety credentials (CSP, ASP, OHST, CHST, STS/STSC, or CET) to over 40,000 individuals.
The Institute for Safety and Health Management (ISHM) provides accredited certifications for Safety and Health Managers and Practitioners. It is the only HSE certification provider that focuses on the entire safety management process. It recognizes safety professionals for the education and experience they have gained and is widely accepted by Occupational Health and Safety Departments in General Industry, Construction, Oil and Gas, Utilities, Healthcare and Emergency Management markets.
