Certified Occupational Safety Specialist-
COSS® is a training program designed by safety professionals for the entry level person, or for the experienced safety person who needs a refresher on safety. Its main objective is to equip employees who have safety and health responsibilities, with the core competencies they must master to be successful in occupational safety and health. The COSS® Program provides students with focused and relevant content that is enforced with concentrated learning activities. Unlike other safety designations, where there is no training involved, the curriculum-based format of the COSS® Program involves hands-on, in-class, instructor-led training. Students testify to the value of the training they receive; instead of simply “testing into the designation”, they feel like they worked hard to earn it. Learn More about COSS Training here.
The Northeast Florida Safety Council, Inc. has added the COSS training to its internal core training for all safety staff. If your job is dealing with safety or HR in any way, this class is for you. This is a one week intensive training class to make you a better safety person or give you a strong start in safety.

- COSS Padfolio with pen and calculator
- COSS Copyrighted Student Workbook
- 29 CFR 1910 (General Industry)
- 29 CRF 1926 (Construction)
