NYCOSH is one of the preeminent providers of worker safety and health training in the New York City metropolitan area and beyond. Each year, we train thousands of workers on a wide range of safety and health topics – from green jobs to workplace violence to OSHA 10- and 30-hour courses. Our expert staff includes an industrial hygienist, experienced organizers, and staff who are OSHA-authorized and have advanced degrees in public health.
NYCOSH’s trainings help to keep workers healthy and safe. A needs assessment is conducted beforehand to ensure that each training is tailored to the hazards, conditions, and concerns of participants. Participants learn how to develop strategies for addressing workplace hazards. Sessions are highly participatory and may include small group activities, role-playing, discussion, and hands-on training.Training is made available in various ways. Most programs are arranged through unions, community organizations, and New York area labor councils and build upon the training that these organizations may already offer.
Many of NYCOSH’s trainings and industrial hygiene services are funded by federal and state grants and are available to participants free or at a nominal cost. Other trainings and industrial hygiene services are available on a low-cost, fee-for-service basis. Please consult with your organization’s NYCOSH contact for further information or call Executive Director Charlene Obernauer at (212) 227-6440 ext. 15 or Industrial Hygienist Dave Newman at (212) 227-6440 ext. 20.
