The Safety Consultation and Training
Section (SCATS) of the State of Nevada’s Division of Industrial Relations
through their Safety and Health Practitioner Program provides a pathway to
certifications granted by the Institute for Safety and Health Management

Management Practitioner (CSMP) certification recently received the highly
sought after accreditation by the Council of Engineering and Scientific Boards
(CESB). Other certifications offered by ISHM include the designations, Associate
Safety Health Manager (ASHM) and Certified

SCATS’ Safety and Health

have attended at least 27 SCATS training programs within a three-year period.
The classes offered are either OSHA standard based or provide skills to ensure
attendees are more effective in their safety and health responsibilities.
