How much of the process is well understood by either the general public, employers or even safety and health professionals? This article presents information intended to help OSH professionals understand why and how a properly developed and administered certification exam shows the mark of excellence in the field of safety and health.


The Ideas of Peter F. Drucker - Vital Knowledge for OSH Professionals, Jay C. Brakensiek

Most managers and safety professionals have heard of the work of Peter F. Drucker, called by many the father of modern management and the man who invented management. His pioneering work at General Motors, in Concept of the Corporation (Drucker, 1946) and his many books, articles and publications have provided the foundation for what is now termed general management. Knowing Drucker’s ideas and how to put them to use can provide a key link to the management team in organizations, and improve individual and organizational effectiveness.

756 Management of Mold, Before, During, and After a Water Intrusion Event, Robert Rottersman and Jennifer Ellis

A company that manages moisture in its buildings will reduce the risk of mold growth, business interruption, employee complaints, and negative PR. The time to think about moisture and mold growth in a building is not after it becomes evident; it is before you break ground, consider building and mechanical design, construction life cycle, preventative maintenance, building operation and incident recovery preparedness. When an event does occur, it is important to take an approach that is appropriate to both remediate damaged materials and mitigate the water source.

605 Look Up - The Roof's on Fire, Richard P. Luongo and Aaron J. Kalisher

Photovoltaic (PV) renewable energy continues to grow on a global basis. Currently, Europe leads the world with nearly 75% of total installations; however, the United States now produces 10% of the world’s remaining solar capacity. Due to a velocity of growth in this industry, vulnerabilities to unintended consequences may include fires, building collapse, electrocution, injuries/fatalities to workers, including slips, trips and falls, and the impairment of fire-fighting activities. This report will highlight the challenges and importance of embedding safety management for the successful design, commissioning and ongoing maintenance of rooftop PV installations.


SH&E Industry 2015 Salary Survey, Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP)

The purpose of this research project was to better understand compensation trends among Safety, Health, and Environmental (SH&E) professionals. Since 2008, the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) has measured and reported salary and employment trend data as a service to its certificants and SH&E professionals. In 2015, BCSP hoped to develop a more complete SH&E employment trend and salary picture by inviting five partners to participate in the data collection process. Partners: ASSE - American Society of Safety Engineers; ABIH - American Board of Industrial Hygiene; AHMP - Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals; AIHA - American Industrial Hygiene Association; and IHMM - Institute of Hazardous Materials Management.


What is the BOK?

The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
