OSHA Outreach 10 & 30-hour Classes / General Industry and Construction
The OSHA Outreach Training Program provides training for workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces. The program also provides information regarding workers’ rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint. This is a voluntary program and does not meet training requirements for any OSHA standards.
These training class are voluntary. OSHA recommends outreach courses as an orientation to occupational safety and health for workers. However, some states have enacted laws mandating the training (New York does not). Also, some employers, unions, organizations or other jurisdictions may also require this training.
The 10-hour outreach course typically is taught in 2 training days. The 30-hour outreach course is typically taught in 5 training days. We can customize the training to fit your company’s needs.
The course must be completed with 6 months from the first day the training begins.
Through this program, workers can attend 10-hour or 30-hour classes delivered by OSHA-authorized trainers. The 10-hour class is intended to provide workers with awareness of common job-related safety and health hazards, while the 30-hour class is more appropriate for supervisors or workers with some safety responsibility. Through this training, OSHA helps to ensure that workers are more knowledgeable about workplace hazards and their rights, and contribute to our nation’s productivity.
