LSU Professional Development is proud of our partnership with the Alliance Safety Council and to extend you the opportunity to attend the Certified Occupational Safety Specialist (COSS®) program. COSS is a nationally recognized 40-hour, a five-day training program designed by safety professionals for the entry-level person or for the experienced safety person who needs a refresher in safety. Its main objective is to equip employees who have safety and health responsibilities with the core competencies they must master to be successful in occupational safety and health. Unlike other safety designations, where there is no training involved, the curriculum-based format of the COSS program involves hands-on, in-class, instructor-led training.
