OSHA Outreach Training Program
The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) requires companies to provide adequate training for all their employees in the recognition and avoidance of any unsafe conditions applicable to their scope of work. OSHA’s Outreach Training Program is a great way to be sure your employees are receiving the training they need. When you enroll your employees in a 10 or 30 hour course in either construction or general industry they are taught to recognize, control and prevent safety and health hazards. They will receive training on a number of different required topics, but there are also topics that you can choose from to customize the course to fit your company’s needs. A growing number of states are even requiring their workers to have their 10 and/or 30 hour training completion cards as a prerequisite to work.
You can be sure that your employees are receiving quality safety and health training that they will bring back to work with them. OSHA has stringent requirements for their Outreach trainers who must be certified and meet specific experience and educational requirements. Online training, which also meets OSHA’s standards, is available if classroom training isn’t possible.
Training is one of the best things you can do to take care of your company and its employees. Take the time to think about how well your employees are trained in safety matters. Could they benefit from a 10 or 30 hour course in construction or general industry safety and health?
