Health and Safety Awareness
IH/OH professionals may interface with a variety of allied professionals. Note that the terms used below may not be universally accepted, and roles may vary by country.
IH technicians work with and support senior-level professionals in conducting field assessments and measuring hazards to help prevent harm to workers, property, the environment, and the public. The minimum educational requirement is generally an associate degree. Others may enter the profession with a high school diploma and obtain supplemental training through a vocational-technical program or professional certificate program (e.g., BCSP’s OHST certification). They generally collect data on the health and safety conditions of the workplace.
