Certified Occupational Safety Specialist (COSS®) is a training program designed by safety professionals for the entry level person, or for the experienced safety person who needs a refresher on safety. Its main objective is to equip employees who have safety and health responsibilities with the core competencies they must master to be successful in occupational safety and health. The COSS® Program provides students with focused and relevant content that is enforced with concentrated learning activities.

The course consists of 40 hours of hands-on, instructor-led learning. Case studies and workshops are used extensively to bring learning objectives into focus. Student presentations, daily quizzes, practical reviews and a comprehensive final exam allow students to demonstrate their competencies in the class. By learning how to promote safety on a jobsite, COSS graduates will have the knowledge necessary to help lower fatalities, near misses and OSHA citations.
COSS graduates will be able to:
• Determine the true cost of accidents
• Calculate total recordable incident rates
• Search company and public records to assess where the likelihood of an accident may lie
• Master the use of the Code of Federal Regulations (construction and general industry)
• Identify hazards, determine regulatory requirements, implement corrective actions and train personnel in required changes
• Complete risk analyses for key jobs and processes
• Perform thorough accident investigations
• Develop and implement a safety audit and inspection program
• Communicate corporate safety initiatives and goals
• Develop and maintain company safety plans and manuals
