Knowledge is Power.
Have you ever wanted to be a team leader and teach others the importance of understanding OSHA standards related to the Construction Industry? Safety, support, liability, employee training, knowledge and empowerment all play a critical role in the Construction Industry. As an Outreach Trainer, you would be providing an educational experience for your students that will promote creating a safer environment for each job site. Teaching an OSHA 10-hour or 30-hour class involves recognizing hazards and focusing on the necessary steps to rectify any unsafe situation.
Eligibility to become an OSHA Construction Industry Outreach Trainer involves meeting specific experience and/or education criteria (*see below), and then successfully completing OSHA #510 OSHA Standards for the Construction Industry, followed by OSHA #500 Trainer Course for the Construction Industry. Once both courses have been completed, you are eligible to become an Outreach Trainer, to conduct both 10-hour and 30-hour construction safety and health courses, and to issue student completion cards to participants.
*5 years of construction industry safety experience (NOTE: A bachelor or higher college degree in Occupational Safety and Health or Industrial Hygiene from an accredited college or university, a Certified Safety Professional (CSP) certification or Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) certification may be substituted for two years of experience. A degree or certification is not a requirement.)
