Investing in Returning Citizens, Employment Works Begins Offering OSHA Certification Classes in April

Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) training in construction is now being offered monthly by Employment Works, a program operated by Grant Associates to serve returning citizens. Developed by the U.S. Department of Labor, OSHA training and certification provides attendees with an awareness of safety and health concerns particular to various industries. Job seekers who successfully complete the training are able to schedule an interview for a driver’s helper position at a salary ranging from $17 to $21 an hour. Without certification, this job would cap at less than $17 per hour. “OSHA training will open the door to additional certifications so that job seekers can earn even more money,” Employment Works Director Patricia Brooks said.
