OSHA selects RIT as site for new training center

RIT is the site of a new Occupational Safety and Health Administration Training Institute Education Center.

The RIT center, which began operation this summer, draws engineers, managers, safety directors and others associated with construction and manufacturing in western New York for training in chemical handling, construction safety, emergency response and evacuation planning, ergonomics and respiratory protection, says Jennifer Schneider, assistant professor of environmental management and safety and an instructor of courses to be offered through the OSHA Training Institute Education Center at RIT.

“The education is tailored for the workforce,” Schneider says.

The RIT center, one of 20 nationwide, will offer a complete schedule of courses beginning this October, says Kitren VanStrander, director of managed academic programs in RIT’s College of Applied Science and Technology and center director.
