Public Sector MESH

Core course (30 of 100 MESH Hours)

Are you responsible for managing safety in local, state, or federal government?

Then our new Public Sector MESH (Manager of Environmental, Safety and Health Program) is the certificate program designed for you!

There is a lot to know about occupational safety and health. The responsibilities associated with safety have increased in recent years. Training that is specific to the unique public sector environment will prepare you to meet the challenges found in the diverse work environment of today. The Safety and Health Council of North Carolina, in partnership with the North Carolina Department of Labor and NC State University, have developed the Public Sector MESH program to recognize individuals working in the public sector who complete 100 training hours in safety and health course work relevant to this specialized environment. Although 70 hours of training may be selected from a variety of courses available through the sponsoring organizations, 30 hours of core course training is required to earn the certificate. This requirement can be met by completing the Public Sector – MESH, Core Course Week.
