The OSHA 30-hour Construction Industry Outreach Training course is a comprehensive safety program designed for anyone involved in the construction industry. Specifically devised for safety directors, foremen, and field supervisors; the program provides complete information on OSHA compliance issues. The OSHA 30 Construction 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.
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.
NOTE: The 30 Hour Construction course is NOT equivalent to the OSHA 510 or 511 courses and will not meet the course prerequisites to take the OSHA 500 or 501 courses.
HOW LONG IS THE COURSE?
The OSHA 30 hour training course in construction standards was created by OSHA, who has authorized certain OSHA Outreach trainers to conduct this 10-hour training class for a group of workers in a classroom setting (usually spread over two consecutive days). This is a voluntary program and does not meet training requirements for any OSHA standards.
TIME TO COMPLETE THE COURSE
Once you enroll in the 30 Hour Construction Training course you will have 6 months to successfully complete the course. Participants also receive the Department of Labor (DOL) OSHA 30 hour wallet card. This card is the official DOL 30 hour card and is sent to eight to ten weeks after completion.
