LTU to host MIOSHA Training Institute Construction Boot Camp
February 15, 2023
SOUTHFIELD—The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration, in collaboration with Lawrence Technological University’s Construction Safety Research Center, is offering a two-week training program teaching MIOSHA’s construction safety standards, job site hazard recognition, and hazard abatement.
The MIOSHA Training Institute Construction Boot Camp will be held March 6-16 at Lawrence Technological University, 21000 W. 10 Mile Road, Southfield.
Employers who want to understand employer responsibilities, know how to recognize workplace hazards, and how to protect workers from occupational hazards on construction sites, will not want to miss this program. It’s also a must for contractors, safety and health coordinators, project managers, job superintendents, and others interested in construction safety and health information. This boot camp will allow participants to complete training in two weeks rather than in individual MTI classes for months.
Upon completion of this boot camp, class participants will receive:
- A 30-Hour OSHA Construction Course Card
- A MIOSHA Level 1 Construction Safety and Health Certificate
- Two electives towards a MIOSHA Level 2 Construction Safety and Health Certificate
This course is open to anyone interested in improving workplace safety and health – not just MTI graduates.
Classes will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, March 6-9 and March 13-16, in Room 406 of LTU’s A. Alfred Taubman Student Services Center.
The course cost of $382.50 includes all course materials but does not include lunches on class days. This cost is half the price that MIOSHA and LTU plan to charge for future sessions.
