This course is designed for individuals interested in teaching the 10‑ and 30-hour general industry safety and health Outreach training program to their employees and other interested groups. Using the OSHA General Industry Standards as a guide, special emphasis is placed on those topics required in the 10- and 30-hour programs as well as those which are most hazardous. Students are briefed on effective instructional approaches and use of visual aids and handouts. This course allows the student to become a trainer in the OSHA Outreach Training Program, to conduct both 10- and 30-hour General Industry Outreach classes, and to issue cards to participants after verifying course completion. Students who wish to participate as authorized trainers in the OSHA Outreach Training Program must prepare a presentation on an assigned OSHA General Industry Outreach Training Program topic individually or as part of a group and successfully pass a written exam at the end of the course. Minimum student contact hours: 26
OSHA’s 29 CFR 1910 General Industry Standard (1900- 1910.999 and 1910.1000 to end) will be provided via Regs2Go.
Students will be asked to develop and present a 30-60 minute presentation during class time as part of the requirements to become an authorized trainer. To facilitate this, the use of a personal computer is welcomed into the course for the creating of the presentation. Authorized Trainers must possess both an active Trainer Card and certificate of course completion. To obtain these two credentials, the student trainer must pass (80%) both the performance test and the knowledge test in the #501 course. Students that do no pass the test the first time will be given one opportunity for a retest. The retest result is final. A Letter of Attendance will be issued to students that do not meet the criteria to become an Authorized Trainer.
