THE NATIONAL SAFETY EDUCATION CENTER

National Safety Education Center logo

The National Safety Education Center (NSEC) is one of 26 OSHA Training Institute Education Centers (OTIECs) in the nation. These education centers are a national network of non-profit organizations authorized by OSHA to deliver occupational safety and health training to public and private sector workers, supervisors and employers.  Richland is not an OTI Education Center, but serves as a host training organization for the NSEC. Richland provides advanced courses for compliance with OSHA regulation as well as general safety and health courses to meet safety awareness and new hire orientation needs.
