OSHA students receive 30-Hour OSHA General Industry cards.
Southwest Mississippi Community College Occupational Safety and Health Technology (OSHA) students recently received their 30-Hour OSHA General Industry cards. Occupational Safety and Health technicians help prevent harm to workers, property, the environment, and the general public. They promote occupational health and safety within organizations by advising management on how to increase worker productivity through raising morale and reducing absenteeism, turnover, and equipment downtime while securing savings on insurance premiums, workers’ compensation benefits, and litigation expenses.Pictured on the front row (left to right) is Vice President for Career and Technical Education Jeremy Smith along with students Lacey Howell of Summit, Tyler Vanderslice of McComb, Laken Nace of Foxworth, and Rufus Breeden of McComb. The back row includes OSHA instructor Mike Flowers and students Cage Ashley of Hattiesburg, Trenton Warren of Kentwood, Amanda Greer of Wesson, Donald Greer of Wesson, and Michael Caston of McComb.
