Safety Training Services


Experience has shown that companies with safe work environments and comprehensive safety programs are more profitable, more productive and have better employee retention.

Northwest Tech is your source for professional services and training to assist in developing a positive safety culture in your organization. Our safety programs and services are designed to meet OSHA and DOT standards. Instructors are highly trained and certified in their areas of expertise. Most training provides hands-on experience and application of safety practices.

Services and training related to workplace safety and health are offered at low-cost and often no cost to employers through a funding program with CareerTech. A wide range of safety trailers are available to provide services and training on site at your location. We will conduct a thorough needs analysis to identify specific training outcomes. Training is available at your site or on the Fairview or Alva campuses.
