Delaware Valley Safety Council Announces October Certified Occupational Safety Specialist (COSS) Class

Delaware Valley Safety Council Announces October Certified Occupational Safety Specialist (COSS) Class

Gibbstown, NJ (PRWEB) September 03, 2014

During the week of October 27th through October 31st, the Delaware Valley Safety Council (DVSC) will be hosting another Certified Occupational Safety Specialist® (COSS) class at its Sewell, NJ facility located at the Rowan College at Gloucester County Continuing Education Center.

The COSS program is unique. Not only do students learn how to read and understand the OSHA 1910 and 1926 Code of Federal Regulations, which can help a company avoid OSHA citations costing millions of dollars, more importantly, students learn how to work safely on a job site and to teach fellow employees and coworkers how to eliminate the risk of fatalities and near misses.

Almost 85% of COSS graduates responding to a survey indicated that since taking COSS, their companys injury rate and/or OSHA recordables have decreased by 25%, others attesting to as much as a 100% decrease!


The class also addresses the psychology of safety, the true cost of an accident, hazard recognition, how to start a health and safety program, behavior-based safety, and much more.

Upon successfully completing the five-day, forty-hour program, students obtain the national Certified Occupied Safety Specialist designation, the OSHA 10-Hour Card of Completion in Construction, and the OSHA 10-Hour Card of Completion in General Industry.

COSS is recognized by the American Council of Construction Education (ACCE) and the American Association of Safety Councils (AASC). COSS is the only non-degree program to receive this national endorsement. And COSS has been established as a mandatory course for students in the Construction Management program at Louisiana State University.

The program consists of 40 hours of hands-on, face-to-face learning, delivered by an Authorized OSHA Outreach Trainer in both Construction and General Industry. Case studies and workshops are used extensively to bring learning objectives into focus. Guest speakers from areas such as OSHA and other governmental agencies contribute to enhance the learning experience. Student presentations, daily quizzes, practical reviews, and a comprehensive final exam allow for the demonstration of competencies.

During this past July, DVSC completed a successful COSS training class at DVSC-NJ in Sewell that graduated eleven students. Among the graduates were: Steven Stewart; Jim Specht; Robert Eastlack; Patrick Basil; Artrez Ewing; Robert Brown; Brian Golle; Chris Doty; Michelle Whittick; Chris Bradfield; and Tony Moffa. Anthony Barzelatto was their COSS/OSHA Outreach instructor.

The only prerequisite for the COSS program is a high school diploma or equivalent. Each class has a mix of non-experienced, first-time safety personnel as well as safety professionals who have been in the safety field for over 20 years. Regardless of the number of years experience one might have in safety, everyone leaves the COSS class with a wealth of knowledge.
