OSHAcademy offers several 10- and 30-hour General Industry and Construction Safety and Health programs. These programs are designed to provide essential training for employees and supervisors within these industries.
We want each student to choose the type of training that best fits their specific needs. If that is OSHAcademy training, great! If that is training through another organization, no problem.
Students are responsible for determining the specific training they require. Please verify any employer, union, or other requirements before enrolling in these programs.expand all
The 10-hour training program is primarily intended for entry level workers. The 30-hour training program is intended to provide workers with some safety responsibility a greater depth and variety of training. All 10- and 30-hour training is intended to cover an overview of the hazards a worker may encounter on a job site.
Training emphasizes hazard identification, avoidance, control and prevention, not OSHA standards.
No, they are voluntary. OSHA recommends outreach training as an orientation to occupational safety and health for workers.
Important Note: Connecticut, Massachusetts, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, and Rhode Island have enacted laws mandating the training. Also, some employers, unions, organizations or other jurisdictions may also require this training.
Our OSHAcademy 10- and 30-hour programs were developed by Steve Geigle, the founder of OSHAcademy and a retired Oregon OSHA trainer. Each program was carefully designed to provide training content equivalent to the OSHA (DOL) Outreach courses.
Additionally, each course within the 10- and 30-hour programs includes an exam as evidence of student learning.
Like the OSHA (DOL) completion cards, OSHAcademy training record cards do not have an expiration date. Employers may require additional training depending on their specific requirements or needs.
OSHAcademy's 10- and 30-hour training programs are intended as an orientation to Occupational Safety and Health. Workers must receive additional training on specific hazards of their job.
OSHA recommends outreach courses as an orientation to occupational safety and health for workers. Although some states, municipalities or others may require outreach training as a condition of employment, it is not an OSHA requirement. None of the OSHA 10-hour and 30-hour Outreach Training Program is considered a certification.
Important Note: You should verify your specific state and municipality training requirements. Due to changes implemented by states and local municipalities, we cannot guaranttee this list is complete.
Employers are responsible for training their workers on specific hazards of their job, as noted in many OSHA standards. A list of standards requiring training is found in OSHA Publication 2254 [PDF], "Training Requirements in OSHA Standards and Training Guidelines."
The student course completion cards in Construction, General Industry, Maritime and Disaster Site do not have an expiration date. The form and content of additional training is left to the discretion of the student and/or employer.
The Outreach Training Program is intended as an orientation to Occupational Safety and Health. Workers must receive additional training on specific hazards of their job.
