Health and Safety Training Center (HSTC)

About Us (HSTC)

Since 1987, the Health and Safety Training Center at The University of Texas at Austin has provided safety and health compliance training to the Texas mining industry as the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) State Grants recipient of Texas. Throughout the years the name has evolved and was most recently known as the Texas Mine Safety and Health Program.

In addition to providing mine safety compliance training, the Health and Safety Training Center is continuously expanding to provide safety and health training for Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) compliance, Electrical Safety, Certification Exam Prep for safety professionals, MSHA Underground Mine Safety compliance, and expanded First Aid/CPR offerings.

We train industry professionals at all experience levels around the globe in new technologies, cutting-edge equipment, and current industry standards and practices that help build a more competent, prepared workforce.

Development of course offerings and subject matter topics will be continuous as we strive to provide safety and health training applicable to all industries and individuals. Safe production continues to be our priority as we work to prevent on-the-job injuries, accidents and fatalities across Texas, the United States and internationally.
