Human Resources Professionals Select CSHMs when Filling Health and Safety Positions
The prestigious CSHM certification distinguishes outstanding health and safety professionals and is administered by the ISHM.
Human Resources professionals play a critical role in the business world. They are tasked with understanding everything from labor laws to conflict resolution. Not only is the HR department typically responsible for managing employees, but it is also their job to hire everyone from unskilled laborers to executive level professionals.
One of the critical positions in many companies that the HR department fills, through full time employment or through a consulting contract, is the safety management function. Safety management is a vital role in today’s complex business environment.
Many HR professionals have come to rely on organizations such as the Institute for Safety and Health Management (ISHM) to identify qualified candidates to fill these important positions. The ISHM administers the Certified Safety and Health Manager (CSHM) certification which clearly demonstrates a person’s professional knowledge and experience in this field by an impartial third party.
The CSHM certification shows HR professionals and 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.
Larry Curtis, CSHM, Executive Director of ISHM, recently discussed why the CSHM certification helps identify qualified safety management professionals. “The CSHM 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 demonstrated by CSHM certificate holders makes them stand out from the crowd when their services are required.”
