CERTIFIED HEALTHCARE SAFETY PROFESSIONAL (CHSP)

See SCHEDULE tab above for dates.

 

The Board of Certified Hazard Control Management (BCHCM) also known as the International Board for Certification of Safety Managers founded the CHSP designation in 1978. More than 2,900 hospital and healthcare personnel have earned this prestigious designation since 1979. The program supports the systematic approach of managing healthcare safety hazards. The examination of 100-120 questions addresses risks or hazards found in hospitals and other healthcare facilities. The American Society of Healthcare Risk Managers (ASHRM) lists the CHSP as one of the qualifying elements for their prestigious Risk Management Fellow Program. The CHSP exam covers the entire field of healthcare safety to include employee safety, infection control, safety management, hazardous materials, safety standards and codes, patient safety, risk & quality, and general facility safety. Additional information on the CHSP certification process can be obtained from the International Board for Certification of Safety Manager's website.

 

Safety Training Innovators provides classroom CHSP test preparation and then proctors the actual CHSP examination thereafter. The completed sealed tests are returned directly to the Board, and the student will be advised by the Board on their certification status.
