About Us

Our History

“The OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education Centers are a national network of non-profit organizations authorized by OSHA to deliver occupational safety and health training to public and private sector workers, supervisors, and employers on behalf of OSHA.”  OSHA.gov

Keene State College was an early adopter of OSHA’s mission to situate convenient, accessible and affordable OSHA education in each region of the United State through a contractual, unfunded relationship with academic institutions, authorized in 1994. The OTI Education Center strives to support our New England workforce and employers by providing classroom locations in over 25 comfortable classrooms in six states on an “open enrollment” basis, and on-site customized training opportunities following the learning objectives established by the Directorate of Training and Education, OSHA.

Our Mission

In keeping with OSHA’s mission statement  “to assure, so far as possible, every working man and woman in the Nation safe and healthful working conditions,” OTIEC Region 1 seeks to nurture a cohesive community of safety and health professionals, working towards safer workplace environments in New England through OSHA education; we believe safety is strengthened through knowledge.
