Our society, as a whole, is still reeling from the effects of the pandemic. Loss of employment is only one example of the aftermath we face. Now that our city is opening up again, companies and businesses are hiring again. Mark Anthony Ramirez of South Texas Safety Alliance (STSA) wants to help build your credentials to obtain the best career out there for you by offering classes and certifications in safety.

“Why not go back to work, you know, with the credentials that you could use that’s going to help you get the job as opposed to somebody who does not have these credentials,” states Ramirez.

Ramirez, who has over 22 years of experience in the construction industry, dove into safety programs about ten years ago, where he eventually became an On-Site Safety Coordinator in Yoakum, Texas. Now, aqui en San Antonio, he is working to help others in the community with the expertise, knowledge, and skills he has gained.

STSA offers online classes, as well as in-person classes at your convenience, for the following:
OSHA -10 Certification
OSHA-30 Certification
First Aid, CPR, AED
Bloodborne Pathogens

“We’re educating people, helping people better their resumes, and helping them get to work, and leading them into that direction,” Ramirez, who is a trainer himself, understands the need for this important work.

Their trainers are some of the best, according to Ramirez, who are also bilingual in English and Spanish.

“We’re here to help you guys to get an education and get the training that you need so that way you can go find a better job…If you can spend $150 on them Jordans, then you can spend $150 on this class and get more Jordans,” Ramirez concludes.

So, gente, if you are looking for a career change or would like to add to your resume, give South Texas Safety Alliance a try and register for a class.
