Course Description: This course is designed for those interested in teaching the 10- and 30-hour construction safety and health outreach program to their employees and other interested groups. Special emphasis is placed on those topics that are required in the 10- and 30-hour programs as well as on those that are the most hazardous, using OSHA standards as a guide. Course participants are briefed on effective instructional approaches and the effective use of visual aids and handouts. This course allows the student to become a trainer in the Outreach Program and to conduct both a 10- and 30-hour construction safety and health course and to issue cards to participants verifying course completion.
Note: Students in Course 500 who wish to participate as authorized trainers in the OSHA Outreach Training Program must prepare a presentation on an assigned OSHA Construction Industry topic and pass a closed book examination. Authorized OSHA Construction Outreach Trainers are required to attend Course 502 at least once every four (4) years to maintain their outreach program trainer status.
Feedback from a graduate of the program
This training authorizes folks to teach the “OSHA-10 and “OSHA-30-hour” courses, and I’ve only taught one class in 20 years, an OSHA-10 Construction for the MWRA 6 years ago – one great thing the Train the Trainer training emphasizes is teaching the adult learner – how to teach as much as what to teach. That’s the primary benefit to the safety of people looking to spread their knowledge to various departments in their municipalities.
