OSHA 30 Hour Construction Safety Training Course

Program Purpose

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Outreach Training Program for the Construction Industry teaches construction workers about their rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint as well as how to identify, abate, avoid and prevent job related hazards. Students completing the OSHA 30 Hour Construction Safety Training will be awarded a certificate of completion.

The 30-hour Construction Outreach Training Program is intended to provide a variety of training to workers with some safety responsibility. Training should emphasize hazard identification, avoidance, control and prevention, not OSHA standards. The topic requirements are as follows:
