Safety & Health Certificate Programs

Introducing 7 Safety & Health Certificates

Our certificates are designed to provide comprehensive occupational safety and health training for individuals looking for a solid grounding in OSHA standards and complex occupational health issues that confront businesses today. Companies that employ certificate graduates obtain safety specialists who understand accident prevention techniques and who provide cost-effective answers to regulatory requirements.

Each certificate's core courses provide the fundamentals of occupational safety and health regulations. Elective courses enable students to design a program that addresses the special needs of their workplace. Certificate graduates receive discounts on other Pacific Northwest OSHA Ed Center classes.
