OSHA reaccredited to continue providing training programs
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA's) Directorate of Training and Education (DTE) was recently reaccredited by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) to keep providing Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for occupational injury and illness prevention training.
DTE includes the OSHA Training Institute, and offers a broad range of courses and programs designed to help workers and employers expand their knowledge of how to recognize, avoid, and prevent workplace safety and health hazards. In addition, OSHA offers educational resources to help companies train their workers and comply with U.S. regulations.
"OSHA education programs train over 850,000 federal and state compliance officers, state consultants, federal employees, employers, and workers each year," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health David Michaels. "Our training, in critical job-related skills, ensures that our compliance officers, workers, and employers stay on the cutting edge to prevent worker injuries, illnesses and deaths. Our IACET reaccreditation demonstrates OSHA's commitment to lifelong learning and high standards for all of our education and training programs."
