Joe M. Gallucci, CIH, CSP

"I received my CIH over 25 years ago and within 1 year of passing the exam, I accepted a new position with a new major oil company supporting all of North America Upstream operations. My old job was a dead end for my career and I was not respected. Without that certification I'm convinced I never would have had that opportunity. Since then I have stayed with that company and have moved 3 times and been promoted 5 times and am an Health/Industrial Hygiene Team Leader for a Region. CIH has gone from "nice to have" to "must have" in my company since my company has stressed the importance of "competency" assessments.

As a Team leader I stress the importance to my staff of getting certified and they all understand that its now expected if they want to be respected as credible and competent. Studying and getting the CIH was one of the best decisions I have ever made both professionally and financially. I am also proud of all the professional relationships I have been a part of since the CIH has encouraged continuing education and networking. Thank you ABIH for being there from the beginning of my career!"
