OSHA extends OSU's authorization for an additional five-year period
Friday, January 21, 2022
The College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology’s (CEAT) Professional Development (PD), along with their Fire Protection and Safety Engineering Technology (FPSET) program was authorized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as a Training Institute (OTI) Education Center in late 2017. This has allowed the CEAT PD department to offer OSHA numbered courses to the general public and customized OSHA training programs for business and industry.
After a thorough review of OSU’s performance throughout the current authorization period, It was announced earlier this week that OSHA is offering to extend OSU’s authorization for an additional five-year period.
OTI Education Centers are non-profit organizations that offer training on OSHA standards and occupational safety and health issues to workers and employers nationwide. Through the OTI Education Center programs, OSHA offers a broad selection of occupational safety and health classes that aim to provide the knowledge and tools that public and private sector workers, supervisors, and employers need to prevent work-related injuries, illnesses, and fatalities.
CEAT PD is the only OSHA training provider in the state of Oklahoma and offers training services for all of Region VI, throughout Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, and New Mexico.
OSU OTI Education Center offers a variety of OSHA classes such as the Outreach Trainer Courses, Occupational Safety and Health Standards, Hazardous Materials, Cranes in Construction, Fall Protection, Excavation and Trenching Safety, Machine Guarding Standards, and other short courses.
CEAT PD continues to be a leader in supporting OSU’s Land Grant Mission. This will have a positive impact for educators, employers, employees, and students, especially for those located here in the state of Oklahoma.
OSHA commends CEAT PD and its staff for OSU’s exceptional performance over the last five years and appreciates their exemplary support of the OSHA mission.
