The Worker Occupational Safety and Health (WOSH) Specialist training program is a statewide effort aimed at reducing job-related injuries and illnesses among California workers. The program was created as part of workers’ compensation reform and is administered by California’s Commission on Health and Safety and Workers’ Compensation (CHSWC) in the Department of Industrial Relations.
At this hands-on, interactive, and stimulating three-day training, you will be introduced to basic occupational health and safety concepts and learn how to take a leadership role in promoting health and safety at your workplace. You will receive a free health and safety course binder, a chance to share ideas and strategies with employees from other workplaces, and a certificate of completion as a WOSH Specialist.
