Why Safety Management Plays Such a Critical Role Today
The Institute for Safety and Health Management (ISHM) administers professional certifications for safety managers who protect workers and the public.
Safety and health management is a critical function in today’s society. Companies and organizations must manage these important functions with the same level of expertise as other core business functions. This helps to control risks, prevent injuries and makes good business sense.
When an organization implements effective EHS management policies, it sets a clear direction and demonstrates a commitment to employees, the public, the environment and shows a dedication to continuous improvement. Safety and health management reduces potential financial loses and liabilities due to incidents, fatalities and product failures, while improving the work environment for all. It also provides a competitive advantage and allows organizations to obtain favorable insurance rates.
The Institute for Safety and Health Management (ISHM) provides the only accredited certification that is dedicated to the advancement of safety and health management in the workplace. The ISHM administers the Certified Safety and Health Manager (CSHM) and Certified Safety Management Practitioner (CSMP) certifications and the Associate Safety and Health Manager (ASHM) designation. These programs help industry and government agencies identify highly qualified safety and health management professionals to carry out these vital services.
“In today’s society, safety management needs to be a core business function,” reported Larry Curtis, CSHM, Executive Director of the ISHM. “The safety management function empowers the workforce to work safely and protect everyone’s health. ISHM provides the means for professionals in these fields to showcase their knowledge and dedication to the profession through internationally recognized certification programs.”
