There are no free Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) certification programs in New York City. This information may change or be dependent on a test taker's employer. Employees may cover all of the cost associated with the OSHA training, making it free for their employees to take, but not free for the company.
The length of the course and requirements will differ depending on the type of training needed for a given job. Each job has different requirement to be officially certified in the safety program. Most employers are aware of qualifications and time frames, though the training may take place on an employee's personal time instead of work time. Employees who need OSHA certification are advised to check with their employer for training or before arranging classes.
