Certified Health

Proven Leadership in OHSE.

The Certified Health and Safety Consultant (CHSC) designation recognizes and promotes excellence in professional occupational health and safety consulting.

It shows your clients that you have taken the time and made the investment necessary to learn the essentials of being a professional occupational health and safety consultant.

To obtain the CHSC designation, you must meet specific criteria as well as successfully complete six courses offered by the CSSE - three mandatory courses and three of the elective courses from the CSSE education offerings.

The Certified Health and Safety Consultant (CHSC) designation, instituted in 1994 by the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering, recognizes and promotes excellence in professional consulting within and to business and industry and government agencies at all levels. CHSCs provide consultative leadership in workplaces and communities across the nation and around the world.

The Board of Directors approved the tagline “Proven Leadership in OHSE” to communicate the advantages for decision-makers in business, industry, and government in retaining the services of health and safety professionals who hold the CHSC designation.

Six Proven Advantages for including a CHSC on an OHSE Team include:

  1. Education and experience in the profession
  2. Demonstrated commitment and specialized training and examination
  3. Ethical behaviour supported by a peer-reviewed CHSC Code of Conduct
  4. Assurance of protection when acting on professional advice
  5. Continuous Professional Growth monitored through an audited CHSC Maintenance Program

The CHSC program is applicable to both internal health and safety advisors or external consultants in private practice. All CHSC holders are CSSE members with liability insurance or company indemnification equivalent.
