-- The ISHM is looking for safety and health professionals to join the ranks of the organization’
s prominent certificate holders. The ISHM administers the prestigious Certified Safety and Health Manager (CSHM) certification program and the Associate Safety and Health Manager (ASHM) designation.
Professionals who distinguish their qualifications through the CSHM and ASHM programs are highly sought after by human resources (HR) managers and government agencies such as OSHA, EPA, Homeland Security, Army, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard. People in private industry and working for government agencies depend upon the ISHM’s certifications to ascertain the most competent person for critical positions that protect people’s health and safety.
Larry Curtis, CSHM, Executive Director of ISHM, was asked about the organization’
s efforts to encourage professionals involved with safety and health management to apply for the CSHM and ASHM designations. “Choosing which certification to pursue is an important career decision and can have far reaching consequences. For safety and health management professionals the clear choice is the CSHM. It focuses on a broad range of knowledge and skills that safety and health managers need today. These skills include, but are not limited to: EHS Leadership and Commitment; EHS Planning and Prevention; Safety, Health and Environmental Operations and Applications;
Assessment and Evaluation. This broad range of knowledge shows employers that a safety management candidate is qualified and committed to their profession. It gives those in hiring positions the confidence in a candidate’s capabilities and knowledge,” he reported.
