The CSMP program was specifically created to recognize people performing occupational safety and health management activities either on a part-time or full-time basis, but who may have taken a less formal path in their health and safety education. The certification program was designed to provide formal recognition for these professionals.
ISHM is proud to announce that the CSMP program was recently awarded accreditation from the Council of Engineering & Scientific Specialty Boards (CESB). The CESB is an independent, voluntary membership body created for its member organizations that recognize, through specialty certification, the expertise of individuals practicing in engineering and related fields. CESB, as an accrediting body, provides basic criteria and guidelines for the establishment and operation of specialty certification programs.
“ISHM is proud to offer an accredited certification for those with a less formal education or those you may not do EHS activities full time,” said Larry Curtis, CSHM, Executive Director of ISHM. “There had long been a void for these professionals that needed to be addressed. Achieving accreditation for the CSMP program provides real value and recognition for those who have earned the certification and for those working towards achieving certification. The CSMP designation can strengthen future career choices and provides a competitive edge for professionals who earn this prestigious accredited certification.”
