There are several certification exams put out by the Board of Certified Safety Professionals, the most closely related are the Occupational Health and Safety Technologist (OHST) and Certified Loss Control Specialist (CLCS) certification program and the Construction Health and Safety Technician (CHST) certification program. The OHST exam and CLCS exam are so closely related that the exam tests on the same material. Essentially, the duties of an OHST or a CLCS are performing health-related assessments and activities within various occupations. These may include performing tests to determine safety risks in the workplace, evaluating health-related accidents within the workplace, and making plans for emergency situations. The duties of the CHST are much the same, except they are specific to the construction occupation rather than a broad range of occupations.

The OHST exam is made up of 200 multiple-choice questions. The test will be taken over a computer at an official exam location, and the test taker will have a 4 hour time limit. The exam will cover 5 domains of content. These are worksite assessment, which will count for 34% of the exam, hazard control and loss prevention, which will count for 31% of the exam, verification, which will count for 17% of the exam, disaster planning and emergency response, which will count for 14% of the exam, and professional responsibility, which will count for 4% of the exam.

The CLCS exam will be almost identical to the OHST exam. It will be computer-based, there will be 200 multiple-choice questions, you will have a 4 hour time limit, and the content domains and the percentages they make up of the test will be the same.
