Who We Are

The Industrial Safety Training Council is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit training and education organization located in Southeast Texas. With a location in Baytown, Texas and Corporate offices in Nederland, Texas, (just south of Beaumont, Texas) ISTC delivers safety training and site specific job safety orientations to contractors, as well as the employees of 42 local Refining and Chemical plants.

The roots of the organization are firmly entrenched in the highly regulated Petro-chemical and Refining industry. With cutting edge technology ISTC also responds to the challenge of other industries by applying their acquired regulatory and compliance expertise in training. The results are reductions in cost while improving the quality of required training and documentation.
