ASSE approves CSHM certification for professional membership

ISHMThe Institute for Safety and Health Management’s (ISHM) CSHM certification has been approved as an option for professional membership in the ASSE.

Many members of ASSE are also certificate holders of the ISHM’s Certified Safety and Health Manager (CSHM) and Associate Safety and Health Manager (ASHM) certifications.  Today, ASSE and ISHM are pleased to announce at the Denver ASSE meeting that the ASSE has approved the ISHM’s Certified Safety and Health Manager certification as an option for professional membership in the ASSE.

The CSHM certification now joins the ranks of the Certified Safety Professional (CSP) and Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) in achieving this prestigious status and recognition by the ASSE. 

“We are delighted to be announcing this important development to the safety engineering and health and safety professional communities,” says Larry Curtis, CSHM, executive director of ISHM.  “This is a big development that opens the door to ASSE membership to all the health and safety professionals who have distinguished their capabilities by obtaining the prestigious CSHM certification. CSHM applicants for the ASSE membership will be required to demonstrate that they have met stringent educational and experience requirements.”

For health and safety professionals, the CSHM certification is the only accredited certification that focuses entirely on the safety management process. CSHM designees are sought after by human resources (HR) managers and government agencies such as OSHA, EPA, Homeland Security, Army, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard.
