About the Program

Working with the Mid Atlantic OTI Education Center, RHEC offers a wide selection of OSHA training courses and educational programs to help broaden worker and employer knowledge on the recognition, avoidance, and prevention of safety and health hazards in their workplaces. This training will better enable businesses in the Roanoke Valley to be in compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Act.

  • Setting down the load (positioning the truck to unload, positioning the load, moving away the load)
  • Hands-on training

Certificates of Completion will be issued by the Chesapeake Region Safety Council upon successful completion of written and driving tests
