CPSM (Certified Product Safety Manager) Certification

The International Board for Certification of Safety Managers, also known as BCHCM, was established in 1976 as a not-for-profit independent credentialing organization. The Board establishes certification and re-certification requirements for the Certified Product Safety Manager (CPSM). The Board operates as an independent professional credentialing organization that is not affiliated with any other membership group, association, or lobbying body. The Board exists solely for the purpose of issuing individual certifications to qualified candidates. Our mission is to 'Upgrade the Profession' by offering real world and practical certifications.


CPSM Background

Over the years, the CPSM program has attracted a high caliber of hazard control leaders who serve in industry, government, and education. Earning the CPSM provides recognition and status to those meeting the education, experience, and examination requirements to be designated as a CPSM. Product safety can be most effectively achieved by using a multi-disciplinary approach that addresses engineering, systems methods, environmental science, behavioral science, ergonomics, human factors, law, economics, and management.
