How Do I Document my Training?

Documentation is Key

OSHA's Requirements

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to ascertain that each employee involved in operating a process has received and understood the training required in that role and industry. The employer is also required to prepare a record which contains the identity of the employee, the date of training, and the means used to verify that the employee understood the training. When you purchase OSHAcademy's certificate packages and complete a program or course, you receive the documentation needed to remain compliant with OSHA's training documentation requirements.

Professional Development

Whatever your career goals as a safety professional may be, you will want to have proof of any training you complete. Whether you are trying to get promoted or impress a potential employer, once you complete and purchase certificates for one of our training programs, you can list it on your resume under the professional development category. Join our past students who got a job because they took their OSHAcademy certificates to the job interview!

By paying for your OSHAcademy certificates, you also open other opportunities that help you reach your career goals. Our professional level program certificates have helped several students get university credit and helped them meet some of the requirements for the Certified Safety Management Practitioner (CSMP) credential offered by the Institute for Safety and Health Management (ISHM).

Validation & Authentication

Validate Your Certificates

As an added measure of credibility for our customers, OSHAcademy provides a training validation feature.
