OSHA 10 Hour General Industry
The Outreach Training Program provides basic safety and health information and education — it is not meant to fulfill all employer’s training requirements. The OSHA Outreach Training Program for General Industry provides training for workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces in general industry. The program also provides information regarding workers’ rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint. It is important to note that this is a voluntary program and does not create turnkey compliance with OSHA standards. Although some states, municipalities or others may require outreach training as a condition of employment, it is not a Federal OSHA requirement. None of the courses within the Outreach Training Program is considered a certification. Through this program, the 10-hour class is intended to provide workers with awareness of common job-related safety and health hazards. 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. Each worker within the geographic jurisdiction of the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act who successfully completes the program will receive a completion card issued by the U.S. Department of Labor. Our program is designed to account for the time you will spend completing interactive activities, taking post-tests, reviewing job aids, reading supplemental information, and dealing with interruptions to your personal schedule. As such, this assignment will take longer than the 10 hours that OSHA requires.
OHSA Outreach courses are provided in partnership with HSI (Summit Training Source), an OSHA-authorized online Outreach provider.
