    • The Windsor Consulting Group, Inc. Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIHs) Global Business Health and Safety Strategies
    • What is a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH)? A Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) is a licensed professional who has both the required education and first-hand experience to identify, assess and control hazards in the workplace. These individuals are responsible for improving the overall health and safety of people at work by helping to prevent illnesses and injuries that can result from physical, chemical, biological and ergonomic conditions.
    • What is a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH)?  Industrial hygienists, in general, are committed to safety in the work environment, yet not all of these individuals are certified. There is a minimum level of education and experience required before a candidate may even sit for examination.  Typically, candidates hold a Bachelor’s degree in biology, chemistry, engineering, or physics; they may also have completed an ABET accredited program in industrial safety. Experience is another requirement, in that it proves proper application of education and skills.  With an accredited relevant degree and several years of experience, a person may sit for the Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) examination.  The American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) is the organization that has standardized the qualifications for the industrial hygienist position, and, through its certification program, the skills of qualified professionals can be more easily recognized and valued by employers, workers and the public.
    • Why is it important to have a CIH manage your Industrial Hygiene program?  A Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH), through education, experience, and examination, has earned professional credibility in the field of industrial hygiene. Unlike an industrial hygienist without certification, a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) must participate in an ongoing Certification Maintenance (CM) program every five years.  Recertification allows professionals to preserve the skills they’ve acquired as well as to obtain new knowledge as the industry changes. In short, a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) is the best professional resource to protect worker health and manage/administer an industrial hygiene program.
