NEW Certified Site Safety & Health Officers (CSSHO) designation is NOW AVAILABLE.
The sole purpose of the BCSSHO is to certify practitioners for construction projects requiring compliance with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) EM 385-1-1 Safety and Health Requirements. Site Safety and Health Officers (SSHO ) required by EM 385 identify hazards and evaluate them for the potential to cause injury or illness to people or damage to property and the environment. The SSHO recommends administrative and engineering controls that eliminate or minimize the risk and danger posed by specific construction project hazards. They work with construction contractors and many other disciplines in many different types of construction projects. They work for companies, government agencies and private organizations or offer individual site safety services to include EM 385 -1-1 Accident Prevention Plans and Activity Hazard Analysis.
