Safeopedia explains Certified Healthcare Safety Professional (CHSP)
There are various ways of attaining certification in healthcare safety and not all of them are reliable. Many big organisations such as hospitals will employee a trainer to come and provide training for staff. This training will usually take place over a two-three day extensive course, at which time interested staff members can apply to sit a written or oral test to receive their certificate. Some internet based courses promise on completion a ‘certificate’, but this is merely a certificate produced by that particular company and is not nationally accredited.
