The Crane Institute Certification (CIC) and Arizona’s Institute for Safety and Health Management (ISHM) have entered into a joint marketing agreement with the aim of improving the safety and health of workers, and thereby reducing accidents.
CIC offers NCCA (National Commission for Certifying Agencies) accredited certifications for mobile crane operators, riggers, and signalpersons. ISHM offers certifications for safety management professionals.
CIC's certifications are designed for in-the-field workers while ISHM's certifications target safety managers. Therefore the two certifications complement each other.
"A joint marketing agreement between CIC and ISHM offers customers a holistic approach to safety credentialing. When the work environment is safe, companies are more productive and profitable," said Debbie Dickinson, executive director of CIC.
"By endorsing each other's programs, CIC and ISHM are providing additional resources to their respective customers to help them gain employment, win job bids, reduce risk, and become more competitive and profitable," added Larry Curtis, executive director of ISHM.
