Established in 2004, the TEEX Certified Safety and Health Official® (CSHO) Program serves the needs of industry professionals. Today, it continues today to be identified as a significant safety and health professional designation.

Awarded to over 200 graduates annually, the CSHO Program targets those industry professionals with responsibility for worksite safety and supervision to include related inspections and audits.

The CSHO Program is comprised of two tracks; Construction and General Industry (See track courses below). All related courses linked to the program are delivered by industry-specific qualified subject matter experts (SME). Each SME is selected based upon their individual field experience. The program covers technical training specific to safety managers, supervisors, and/or directors responsible for successful company safety and health programs.

Up to 50% of the total required course hours can be satisfied by completing the required courses at any OSHA Training Institute Education Center or at the OSHA Training Institute in Arlington Heights, Illinois. Proof of successful course completion is required.
