The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) has significantly increased inspections and citations over the last few years to further enforce safety training and procedures in order to prevent catastrophic events. The course will help students identify possible scenarios that include but are not limited to egress and fire protection, machine guarding, ergonomics and material handling.

“The course provides knowledge and skills that are immediately applicable in the workplace,” said Myrtle Turner, director of the Georgia Institute of Technology OSHA Training Institute Education Center. “Many participants reported that because of their training they have reduced accidents, received job promotions, and helped their companies reduce cost.”

Participants can use this course to obtain an Industrial Safety and Health Certificate from Georgia Tech Professional Education.
