The Mid-South OSHA Training Institute Education Center (OTIEC), named to represent the geographical region of the country it serves, is a consortium between the Alliance Safety Council
and Louisiana State University's College of Engineering
. Covering the Region VI states of Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas, it is one of the newest OTIECs named in the fall of 2012. Mid-South is now just the third center serving the vast region, which stretches more than 1,000 miles from east to west. It is located in Baton Rouge, LA, and is the only OTIEC in the state.
The consortium brings expanded opportunities for safety and health training for workers and employers by utilizing a large network of training centers throughout the five-state region and at LSU campuses across the state of Louisiana.
