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.

OSHA 500 is the Trainer Course for Occupational Safety and Health Standards in the Construction Industry.  Eligibility to become an OSHA Construction Industry Outreach Trainer involves meeting specific experience and/or education criteria, 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.

Key topics covered during the OSHA 500 course include:

  • Effective instructional approaches and the use of visual aids/handouts
  • Construction terminology found in OSHA standards
  • How to present effective safety and health training programs in accordance with OSHA’s construction standards, regulations and guidelines

The OSHA Training Institute Education Center offers OSHA 500-Trainer Course for the Construction Industry at multiple locations throughout the year. This course is designed for those who are interested in teaching the 10-hour and 30-hour construction, safety and health outreach classes to employees and other interested groups.
