PRLog - Aug. 11, 2014 - LANSING, Mich. -- The identification, documentation, analysis and tracking of risks are a critical component for many types of businesses and organizations.  These risks may be in the form of physical, chemical or biological concerns and can play a pivotal role in an enterprise’s success or failure.

Enterprise risk management (ERM), as defined by Wikipedia, “…includes the methods and processes used by organizations to manage risks and seize opportunities related to the achievement of their objectives. ERM provides a framework for risk management, which typically involves identifying particular events or circumstances relevant to the organization's objectives (risks and opportunities), assessing them in terms of likelihood and magnitude of impact, determining a response strategy, and monitoring progress. By identifying and proactively addressing risks and opportunities, business enterprises protect and create value for their stakeholders, including owners, employees, customers, regulators, and society overall.”

Certified Industrial Hygienists are uniquely qualified to lead, implement and manage many ERM objectives for companies and organizations.  Their education, training and expertise in identifying and preventing workplace hazards, injuries and illnesses are all key components of a successful ERM program.

“To become a CIH, one needs to demonstrate an understanding and knowledge of many core competencies that are essential in reducing risk,” said Tracy Parsons, CIH, Administrative Program Manager at ABIH.  “These include everything from chemical risks and biohazards to work environments and industrial processes.  Equally important is the ability of a CIH to perform health risk analyses and hazard communications.  This level of professionalism and expertise makes CIHs highly sought after across the globe for ERM initiatives.”
