Course Description: The OSHA Outreach Training Program for the Construction Industry is intended to provide entry level construction workers information about their rights, employer responsibilities, how to file a complaint, as well as how to identify, abate, avoid, and prevent job-related hazards on a construction site. The training covers a variety of construction safety and health hazards which a worker may encounter at a construction site. It will emphasize hazard identification, avoidance, and control and prevention, not OSHA standards. OSHA has required content for this training with a variety of optional electives. The course is designed to cover an overview of the hazards a worker may encounter and may not meet training requirements in OSHA standards for task-specific training.
Course Length: 2 days (one 8-hour day, one 2-hour day).
Who Should Attend: The 10-hour class is intended and recommended for all entry-level workers who participate in construction work, alteration, and/or repair, including painting and decorating.
