WHO ARE WE

 

The Northwest Center for Occupational Health & Safety is one of 16 Education and Research Centers funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH). The Center is responsible for promoting safety and health training programs in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska. We provide graduate and continuing education programs to upgrade the skills of people working in the broad disciplines of occupational and environmental health.

The Pacific Northwest OSHA Education Center offers high quality, standards-based OSHA training for both the private sector and government agencies in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska. The Region X OTI was established in September 1995 by the U.S. Department of Labor. Trainers for each course have been authorized by OSHA, and come from a broad background in conducting high-quality, effective training programs.


OUR MISSION

 

Our mission is to identify continuing education needs in environmental and occupational safety and health and to provide short courses and conferences for industrial hygienists, nurses, physicians, safety professionals, environmental health professionals, and others with interest in occupational and environmental safety and health.

We also coordinate the Department of Environmental Health's effort to assist other institutions and agencies by providing curriculum materials and consultation for course development and to increase awareness and understanding of occupational and environmental safety and health issues throughout the region, across the nation and around the world.
