Who Should Attend OSHA Standards Courses
  • Teachers wanting to enhance their safety and health knowledge.
  • Experienced veteran teachers who need additional safety training to meet professional development goals for relicensure.
  • Newly Licensed Vocational Teachers - Course Substitution: A 3 credit OSHA standards OSHA #510, OSHA #511 can be used to substitute for one of the science electives. This applies to our teachers who are on track for licensure.
  • Teachers intending to use OSHA Standards as course completion pre-requisite to attend OSHA Outreach Trainer Courses
  • Teachers who will only participate as assistants and guest subject trainers should be planning to attend an OSHA 30 hour class or OSHA #510 or #511 standards courses.
ALL Chapter 74 teachers in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts are required to teach Strand 1 of the vocational frameworks which incorporate safe work practices. These frameworks follow OSHA standards which makes OSHA Standards course(s) ideal for ALL Chapter 74 teachers. The discipline specific OSHA Standards course is also a  prerequisite for the Occupational Safety and Health Outreach Trainer course for those teachers electing to become OSHA Outreach Trainers.

The OSHA standards courses meet the criteria to earn academic credits for undergraduate or graduate study. Teachers can register to attend OSHA standards courses with or without academic credit.  See the schedule of OSHA courses for additional details and tuition information. Veteran teachers can take OSHA #511 or OSHA #510 to satisfy PDP requirements for re-licensure.  Credit is granted through Fitchburg State College.
