Global OSHA Training Centers

Global OSHA Training Centers are an international network of affiliate training organizations authorized to conduct training on behalf of the Global Occupational Safety and Health Academy.  The Global OSHA Training Center Program was created to meet the ongoing demand for high quality occupational safety and health training for safety professionals and workers in locations outside the United States.  Modeled after the domestic OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education Center program, these organizations demonstrate advanced experience and proficiency in developing and conducting occupational safety and health curriculum.  This includes highly-qualified instructional staff and world-class training facilities.

Global OSHA Training Centers offer instructor-led train-the-trainer courses which enable safety professionals to become Global OSHA Authorized Trainers and conduct training for workers in locations worldwide.  Global OSHA Training Centers also offer a variety of other instructor-led occupational safety and health courses ranging from one to three days in length.  Upon successful completion of these courses, students received course completion certificates endorsed by the Global Occupational Safety and Health Academy, and a digital badge to document the training they receive.  Organizations interested in becoming Global OSHA Training Centers can request an Information and Application Package by contacting info@globalosha.org.
