MIOSHA Training Institute

Protecting the Safety and Health of Michigan’s Workers Since 2007 MIOSHA Consultation Education & Training (CET) Division and Macomb Community College (Macomb) have partnered on the MIOSHA Training Institute (MTI). Employers, employees and other interested parties can benefit from attending courses through the MTI. The MTI reaches out, educates, and leads the state’s employers and employees in improving and advancing workplace safety and health.

MTI Certificate Program
The certificate program offers participants an opportunity to be recognized for their educational efforts and increased technical expertise. The courses offer continuing education credits and maintenance points as well as an opportunity to achieve Level One and Level Two certificates in General Safety and Health, Safety and Health Management Systems (SHMS), and Occupational Health. Attending MTI courses may qualify an employer for “good faith ” credits during a MIOSHA inspection which may lead to a reduction in penalties. Courses are offered throughout the state in sponsorship with other M ‐ TEC facilities, community colleges, and safety and health organizations at a reasonable cost. Participants can select and attend MTI courses at any cosponsored location. All participants who successfully complete a course will become part of the MTI database managed by Macomb. Participants are under no obligation to pursue certificate program requirements.

Level One Certificate Programs

Many Level One courses are designed for new safety and health coordinators, committee members, and others interested in general safety and health information. Level One allows the participant to begin the process of developing a safety and health management system while becoming familiar with MIOSHA Standards and other relevant topics. To achieve the certificate, students in the General Industry Safety and Health track must successfully complete four classes, of which MIOSHA General Industry 10 Hour+ and Elements of a Safety & Health Management System (Blueprint) are required, along with two electives from Level One courses, within three years. Students in the Construction Safety and Health track must successfully complete seven classes of which MIOSHA 10 Hour for Construction, Part 45 ‐ Fall Protection and Health Hazards in Construction are required along with four other electives chosen from 14 electives, within three years. All course dates and locations are listed in the training calendar at

Level Two Certificate Programs

Three certificate programs will be offered in Level Two. The Safety and Health Management Systems certificate will provide in ‐ depth information on the administration and management of workplace safety and health systems. This program is designed for those with responsibility for implementing these systems. Students will be required to take six core classes to obtain this certificate. The General Industry compliance track requires four core classes and five electives. The Construction Level 2 certificate track requires that students successfully pass any eight classes not previously taken from the Construction track. A Level One certificate must be achieved prior to the award of any Level Two certificate.  

Occupational Health Certificate Program

The Occupational Health certificate is offered to those students who successfully complete five designated health classes.

Upcoming Classes

MIOSHA Human Factors Engineering (1 Day)

This program is designed to provide a basic understanding of human factors engineering, otherwise known as “ergonomics,” and the implementation of a successful ergonomics program. Upon defining some key terminology and discussing some background information, this seminar will then identify common ergonomic disorders and primary risk factors.

Attendees will then learn how to perform incidence rate calculations followed by a presentation on MIOSHA’s ergonomic initiatives. Additionally, ergonomic risk factor identification will be emphasized through use of a video and a class exercise. Another class exercise will present methods for analyzing workplace records to establish the need for implementing an ergonomics program.
