Industrial Credentials

OSHA Credentialing     

  • OSHA-10 and -30 General Industry credentialing is embedded in MET 2111 (Industrial Safety) as well as non-credit courses through Business and Community Services.
  • From the Department of Labor website: “Through this program, workers can attend 10-hour or 30-hour classes delivered by OSHA-authorized trainers. The 10-hour class is intended to provide workers with awareness of common job-related safety and health hazards, while the 30-hour class is more appropriate for supervisors or workers with some safety responsibility. Through this training, OSHA helps to ensure that workers are more knowledgeable about workplace hazards and their rights, and contribute to our nation's productivity.”
