The qualified environment, health, and safety professional (EHSP) applies experience, knowledge, technology, and scientific principles to evaluate, protect, manage, and enhance the health and safety of people and the environment.

EHSPs must be able to perform a multi-disciplinary evaluation of:

  • occupational and environmental health and safety hazards and risks,
  • environmental aspects and impacts,
  • sustainability,
  • concepts relating to regulatory and voluntary standards and
  • risk mitigation.

EHSPs must have obtained at least a Bachelor of Science in the science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) field and have at least 5 years of experience. Consideration may be given to substitute 6 months of experience if the degree is from an applicable ABET or EHAC-accredited degree program.
