-- For health and safety professionals, the Certified Safety and Health Manager (CSHM) certification is the only accredited certification that focuses entirely on the safety management process. The Institute for Safety and Health Management administers the CSHM certification for the purpose of raising standards for practitioners of safety and health management.
Professionals can obtain this prestigious designation by demonstrating knowledge of health and safety management skills and techniques through examination and experience. To help people interested in earning the CSHM certification, the ISHM offers the Certified Safety and Health Manager’s Electronic Certification Guide.
The document offers a starting point for formal training or informal self-development for persons interested in individual or group study in the safety and health management field. It has been designed to demonstrate what subject areas need to be known and studied. It also helps to identify a candidate’s proficiency prior to taking the CSHM examination.
“The 19 page document is a valuable tool for anyone considering advancing their career by earning the CSHM certification,”
reported Larry Curtis, CSHM, Executive Director of ISHM. “We encourage all applicants to review this important document to be prepared for the certification examination. It offers sample questions and answers, a breakdown of exam areas covered, and helpful tips for taking the examination.”
