The certificate program in Safety and Health Fundamentals (formerly known as the Public Sector Safety & Health Fundamentals certificate) supports OSHA's mission by training employees in occupational safety and health to reduce incident rates for workers in state and local governments and private industry workers. Participants have the opportunity to earn certificates for Construction and General Industry training.
Participants can choose from a variety of topics such as occupational safety and health standards for the construction or general industry, safety and health management, accident investigation, fall hazard awareness, and recordkeeping. Courses are available at OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education Centers nationwide.
All courses required to complete the certificate programs are available through OTI Education Centers. To be awarded a certificate, students must successfully complete a minimum of seven courses, comprised of a minimum of 68 contact hours. Courses are transferable and may be completed at different OTI Education Centers.
