Construction Health and Safety Technician® (CHST®)
The Construction Health and Safety Technician (CHST) provides recognition of your dedication to, and competency in, performing health and safety activities that prevent construction illnesses and injuries.
The CHST is for construction job sites’ safety and health specialists. Responsibilities for safety and health may be all or part of a CHST’s job duties, which may cover one or more significant construction projects or job sites. Candidates may work for an owner, general contractor, subcontractor, or firm involved in construction or construction safety.
The CHST program recognizes that many employers assign responsibility for construction safety and health functions to those with very important roles in leading workers. Many construction safety practitioners use the CHST as a path to greater roles in safety and health.
