Workers' Compensation

2015 National Safety Council (NSC) Training for the Advanced Safety Certification (ASC) Offered

The National Safety Council’s (NSC) Advanced Safety Certificate is one of the credentials acknowledged by the Department of Labor & Industry for an individual to be recognized as a qualified accident and illness prevention services provider under the Health and Safety Regulations of the PA Workers' Compensation Act (act). The act requires that providers who deliver prevention services on behalf of a worker's compensation insurer or self-insured employer, or who deliver safety committee training in the three required topics for state certification or recognition, be qualified.
