The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has formed an alliance with the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP), the Council on Certification of Health, Environmental and Safety Technologists (CCHEST) and the American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH). These organizations will work together to help enhance the education and expertise of safety professionals and industrial hygienists and to promote the value of accredited safety and health certifications.

“Assuring the safety and health of working men and women are the foundations of our respective organizations,” said Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Edwin G. Foulke, Jr. “OSHA is pleased to join with BCSP, CCHEST, and ABIH as we collaborate to develop products, programs and resources that will advance safety and industrial hygiene competency in the workplace.”

The alliance will produce materials and programs that promote the benefits of achieving safety and health certifications. Information will be distributed to employers and employees through print and electronic media, conferences, meetings and other events.

BCSP is the organization that awards the Certified Safety Professional® designation; CCHEST certifies individuals as occupational health and safety technologists, construction health and safety technicians, and safety trained supervisors; and ABIH provides certification for the industrial hygienists.
