OSHA authorizes trainers, who complete the 4-day construction or general industry train-the-trainer courses, to conduct the 10-hour and 30-hour construction or general industry safety and health hazard recognition and prevention courses.

The same requirements apply in the delivery of the Cal/OSHA 10 and 30 Hour Outreach Courses. For more information go to OSHA Outreach Training: Cal/OSHA Partnership Program.
