Its been a very busy July here at our safety education center. Construction is complete on our new building on the main ASU campus in Tempe and we have moved all of our administrative offices to the new College Avenue Commons building. This beautiful new building boasts state of the art classroom facilities, up to date office space, public parking and light rail access and retail & restaurants. We are excited that our program is being housed in the newest building on campus. In the coming months we will schedule courses in the new facility, while we also continue to utilize the ASU Chandler Innovation Center. This facility is also newly constructed through a partnership between ASU and the City of Chandler. With three dedicated classrooms, a computer lab and a hands-on teaching lab, this space fills out our current space needs and when combined with the space available to us in our new College Avenue Commons building, we will have room to grow and expand well into the future. 



We have been working hard to bring you an improved web site, with new features and easier navigation. If you visit http://osha.asu.edu the first thing you will notice is that you are no longer forwarded to the old asuotiec.org web site address. While that old link will continue to work, we have updated the servers and you will now stay on the osha.asu.eduaddress as you browse the improved site. You will noticed a simplified navigation structure with bold links to help you quickly find the information you need. The site also does a better job of reformatting to fit smaller screens like tablets and phones. But, the biggest web site update is the addition of on-line credit card payments (finally)! Payments are handled by a third party PCI compliant vendor on a secured site, and the entire transaction is seamless from our registration pages. You can pay as you register, or return at any time and pay all of your outstanding invoices at once. 


Finally, we have made big improvements to our Outreach Trainer Resources. This includes an easier to navigate page with links to new documents and video tutorials, as well as the addition of an automated on-line process to order replacement cards. Beginning immediately, we have now enabled the option on our card request portal to order and pay for replacement cards for your students. Simply go to www.outreachportal.com, log in, select the "Replacement Card" link and choose from a list of previously entered students to request a replacement card any time. We have also lowered the price of replacement cards to $20! 

We appreciate your continued support and will continue to expand our course offerings and systems throughout the Region. We look forward to seeing you in a future class.
