SAVANNAH, GA. – May 5, 2021 – Georgia Tech-Savannah is set to return to hosting in-person Occupational Safety and Health Standards (OSHA) courses on campus at 210 Technology Dr. Savannah. These courses are scheduled to take place from June – October 2021 and focus on important OSHA principles and applications for people working in maritime, construction and general industry.

The growth of Savannah’s economy which has fueled employment in distribution centers and warehouses, the expansion of the GA Port of Savannah, and the ongoing military presence in our region has greatly increased the need for occupational safety and health training. The convenience of the campus’ location close to Interstate 95, Pooler and Savannah Hilton Head airport and within easy reach of the port and Garden City, is an additional benefit.

As one of only four OSHA Training Institute Education Centers, Georgia Tech-Savannah offers training for the construction and general industries from Savannah to South Carolina, northern Florida, and beyond. The courses are designed to provide participants with the skills needed to help companies reduce accidents, save money, lower worker’s compensation premiums, and increase promotion opportunities and make a positive impact in the workplace.

In addition, all these courses are applicable to one of Georgia Tech’s certificates in occupational safety and health. The following courses are scheduled:

    • OSHA 5410: Safety and Health Standards for the Maritime Industry
      June 7-11, 2021
    • OSHA 500: Trainer Course in Occupational Safety and Health Standards for Construction Industry
      August 17-20, 2021
    • OSHA 501: Trainer Course in Occupational Safety and Health Standards for General Industry
