NOW an Authorized OSHA Outreach Trainer – Construction

Just a note to let everyone know that we are now an OSHA Authorized Construction Trainer for the 10 and 30 hour Construction Outreach Safety Program.

The OSHA Outreach Training Program for the Construction Industry provides training for workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces in the construction industry. The program also provides information regarding workers’ rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint. This is a voluntary program and does not meet training requirements for any OSHA standards.

Through this program, all employees can attend 10-hour or 30-hour classes delivered by OSHA-authorized trainers. The 10-hour class is intended for entry level workers, 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.

There is growing trend by Government Contractor Officers and Private Sector Companies requiring Contractors and their sub-contractors to have either a 10 or 30 hour OSHA Safety class based on their individual responsibilities.  Companies that train their employees may also receive a reduction on their annual insurance cost.  One of the key factors in your workers’ compensation insurance evaluation is the strength and commitment to your employees safety.
