OSHA Authorized Trainer:
The objective of all OSHA Construction Outreach Training Program training is to provide workers with information on recognizing and preventing hazards on a construction sites. Neither the trainer, the students, nor the curriculum is certified or approved (this is normal). The trainer is authorized and the students receive course completion cards. No more than 40 students per class (no less than 3).
The class must be done over a minimum of a two day period. Actual class time is more like 13 hours with breaks. Topics include: (Mandatory): Introduction to OSHA ,OSHA Focus Four Hazards: Fall Protection, Subpart M, Electrical, Subpart K, Struck by; Caught in/between; Personal Protective and Lifesaving Equipment, Subpart E; Health Hazards in Construction are required.. Other elective and optional topics may include: Materials Handling, Storage, Use and Disposal, Tools-hand and power, Cranes, Scaffolds, Excavations, Stairways and Ladders, General Health and Work Related Stress and Fire Preventionare required.
At a minimum OSHA requires 7.5 hours of instruction per day, 30 minutes for lunch and 10 minutes every two hours. Asking students to sit for 2 hours straight is a lot for most students and there ability to retain information is after 45 minutes really reduces.
Students must participate in all 10 hours to receive an OSHA card. No exceptions. Time missed (this is discouraged) can be made up within a two-week period at an additional cost . Hands-on training will not be made up (in other words if the students miss a portion of the hands-on training they will have to drop out of the class).
