The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensations, Division of Safety and Hygiene - Training Center, has been approved as an Authorized Provider by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET), 1760 Old Meadow Road, Suite 500, McLean, VA 22102. In obtaining this approval, the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensations, Division of Safety and Hygiene - Training Center, has demonstrated that it complies with the ANSI/IACET 1-2007 Standard which is widely recognized as the Standard of good practice internationally. As a result of their Authorized Provider membership status, the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensations, Division of Safety and Hygiene - Training Center, is authorized to offer IACET CEUs for its programs that qualify under the ANSI/IACET 1-2007 Standard.

CMs
As of January 2012, the American Board of Industrial Hygiene has discontinued reviews of training events and the practice of providing corresponding CM approval numbers. A Diplomate will no longer need a CM approval number from ABIH to list an event on their CM worksheet. Most DSH courses will continue to fulfill certification maintenance requirements, but individual students must calculate the hours based on course content and time in accordance with ABIH rules. For further explanation, contact ABIH or view the explanation.

BENHA
State of Ohio Board of Examiners of Nursing Home Administrators (BENHA) awards continuing education credits for two courses: Safety and Ergonomics for Extended Care Facilities and Personal Defense Strategies for Long-term Care Workers.

Note: Any classes that are added due to excessive wait lists will not offer BENHA credits.

EPA
The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) offers credit to drinking water and wastewater plant operators.

Nursing credits
The Ohio Board of Nursing offers credit for one course: Asthma! Is Your Company at Risk?
