Q.Why is an OHST certification better than other safety “certifications”?
A.1. Credibility 2.Recognition 3.Accreditation 4.Respect!
Beware of safety certifications that require you to take their course to be “certified”. Although the knowledge provided in their course may be of value, and you may appreciate the coffee mug, t-shirt and other gimmicks they provide, their certification is not likely to be recognized by others in the industry.

Finally, you must pass an examination provided by the Board of Certified Safety Professionals.
Q.Is this course required to take the OHST exam?
A.Neither this nor any other exam preparation course is affiliated or otherwise endorsed by the BSCP. We are however listed on their website as a study source.
Taking this course does not guarantee that you will pass the examination and it is not required to take an exam preparation course to sit for the exam.
Q.Can I use this course as a CSP prep course?
A.Although we do not market this as a CSP exam prep course many past students have successfully taken this course as a stepping stone or as a study resource for their ASP/CSP designations! Plus the math review which we cover is always helpful.

I was very impressed with the class. I feel like I have the materials I need to study in order to pass the test. Also, being shown how to use the calculator was most helpful. I was very rusty on the use of the calculator. The instructor did a great job of keeping the flow of the class going. Thank you Safety Links!
