Certificate Programs

Safety and Health Specialist Certificate Program

Kelsey Koprusak (l) of Ocean State Power receives her SHS General Industry from OTI Education Center instructor Anne Bracker.




Safety & Health Specialist certificate tracks are designed to improve the practical skills and knowledge of those with safety and health responsibilities on the job, as well as collateral duty employees and their representatives. Each certificate program consists of courses identified as “key” in opening the door for a solid foundation in OSHA standards and regulatory requirement solutions for your workplace.

The certificate tracks describe the number of core and elective courses required to successfully complete each certificate program. All courses applied towards certificate completion must have been completed within 5 years of certificate program completion date (completion date must be within 5 years from the oldest class being applied to certificate completion). Please plan accordingly. There are options in certificate electives to make up courses and hours.  Please inquire.

Changes as of February 27, 2019: The new OSHA #7215 Silica in Construction, Maritime, & General Industries has been added to these programs as an elective. Please notice that you need 26 training hours of electives of your choice.

Changes as of July 1, 2018: Certificate program requirements are subject to change. On July 1, 2018 ALL Safety and Health Specialist tracks will have two more available electives. First, the NCSH 481 Process Safety Management for Highly Hazardous Chemicals Used in General Industry and Construction. Secondly, the OSHA # 7845 Recordkeeping Rule, which had been a requirement, but now is available as an elective for those who are responsible for understanding and keeping safety records for their company. Please click on these titles to view course details.

Those enrolled in certificate programs under a prior format may continue with those tracks as planned OR opt to follow the new tracks to certificate completion….whichever best suits your schedule and knowledge requirements.
