If you or your company are current customers of The Safety and Health Training Center, Inc., we can invoice your company for your students attending any of our on-line and in-person classes.  This will result in a normal tuition cost. 

As a current customer, you may also choose to pay by using the PayPal button on our Asbestos page.  If you choose this method, you will be paying a little higher tuition fee to help offset the PayPal fees associated with on-line payment services.

If you are not a current customer of The Safety and Health Training Center, Inc., you and/or your company must pay for the classes in one of two ways.  

The first would be to issue a company check and submitting it to us prior to the class or to have the student bring it on the first day of the class.  Using this method will result in the standard tuition cost.  

The second option is to pay the tuition using the PayPal options located on our Asbestos page.  Using this option will result in an additional charge added to the tuition to offset the PayPal charges.

Thank you!


Effective July 3, 2020, New York state has opened up Asbestos training for ALL courses for in-person training.  This is for INITIAL and REFRESHER Asbestos courses as we have reached Phase 4 of the "New York Forward" program.

We will continue to offer on-line Refresher courses as the demand dictates.  So if you would rather take an on-line program, please contact us to schedule.

Also please contact us right away if you have a need for any of the Initial certifications and we will make every effort to accommodate your requests.


The Safety and Health Training Center will be providing online and in-person training for those companies and facilities that are providing cleaning, disinfecting and decontamination of Facilities and Buildings.  The training will focus on the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and New York State Department of Health (DOH) guidelines as well as discussion regarding the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) List N of Disinfectants.

The online and in-person training consists of a four (4) hour program which is intended for those who currently have some form of environmental cleanup/decontamination and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) training including Asbestos, Lead, Mold or Hazardous Materials Response training.  The training will also provide the attendee with a detailed look into the Safe Work Practices that should be incorporated for COVID-19 cleaning to include proper Personal Protective Equipment donning and doffing as well as disinfecting procedures.  

The classes will be held either online (4 hour program) or at our training facility and in accordance with the guidelines from the CDC, OSHA, WHO and the NYSDOH, we are limiting the total number of students for the in-person programs to twelve (12) to provide an adequate Social Distancing which is the primary Non-Pharmaceutical Infection Control action.  We have also implemented a continuous cleaning and disinfecting process throughout the day to protect all attendees. 

Please contact us to schedule a COVID-19 Cleaning and Disinfecting course!!!

World Renowned Photojournalist Earl Dotter visits 
The Safety and Health Training Center

On October 30, 2019, the world renowned photojournalist, Mr. Earl Dotter, was at Tri-Main Center to celebrate WNYCOSH's 40th anniversary of helping workers across Western New York. Mr. Dotter's amazing photo display was also available for the public to see as shown in some of the pictures.

We were honored to have Mr. Dotter come to our training facility and spend time with our students. Mr. Dotter asked us if he could take some pictures of the facility as well as the training that we were doing. He also indicated that this was the first time since the 1970's that he had photographed Asbestos training.

Special thank you to Greg Andrews, Rob Barr and Les Benedict for agreeing to do some hands-on training and to allow themselves to be photographed.

The remaining pictures were taken as Mr. Dotter was photographing the action.

More photos will be forthcoming.

To Mr. Dotter, thank you so much for spending time with us and thank you for your amazing work.
