CHST (Certified Health and Safety Technician) Study Session
Wednesday, April 10, 2013 at 8:00 AM - Thursday, April 11, 2013 at 5:00 PM (EDT)
Two-day Certified Health and Safety Technician (CHST) Study Session
This study session will start at 8:00 am and end at 5:00 pm daily.
The Construction Health and Safety Technician (CHST) certification is designed for individuals who demonstrate competency and work part-time or full-time in health and safety activities devoted to the prevention of construction illnesses and injuries. The CHST certification meets national standards for certifications.
Candidates for the CHST certification are typically employed as safety and health specialists on construction job sites, serving in either full-time or part-time positions. Typical individuals are responsible for safety and health on one or more significant construction projects or job sites. They may work for an owner, general contractor, subcontractor, or firm involved in construction or construction safety.
The CHST program recognizes that many employers assign responsibility for construction safety and health functions to those with very important roles in protecting workers. Many construction safety professionals use the CHST as a stepping stone to greater roles in safety and health and, in some cases, to the Certified Safety Professional (CSP) certification.
