2013 marks the 10th anniversary of the Institute for Safety and Health Management. The ISHM is a credentialing organization that was founded by the National Safety Management Society (NSMS) in 2003 to promote the establishment of professional standards for safety management.
During the past 10 years, thousands of safety professionals have obtained the prestigious Certified Safety and Health Manager (CSHM) certification and the Associate Safety and Health Manager (ASHM) designation administered by the ISHM.
The ISHM promotes the advancement of safety and health management through the application of management principles and the integration of safety and health into all levels and activities of management. As an adviser to top-level management, the safety manager must be qualified to assist them in discharging their safety leadership responsibilities, to design safety operational systems, and to assist employees in recognizing their responsibilities to work safely. This is accomplished in two ways:
• Through either the prediction of management systems deficiencies before errors occur, or
• The identification and correction of management systems deficiencies by professional analysis of incidents
“The ISHM is proud to have reached the 10 year milestone and to have helped improve the safety and health management profession around the globe,” stated Larry Curtis, CSHM, Executive Director of ISHM. “We look forward to serving in our role for many more years to come.”
