Who Should Take This Course?
This OSHA 10 Hour Construction Safety Online course is intended to provide workers without supervisory responsibility with information about their rights, employer responsibilities, and 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 a worker may encounter at a construction site, emphasizing hazard identification, avoidance, control, and prevention, rather than OSHA standards.
Employers who have trained their workers with the OSHA Outreach Program for Construction have seen reductions of up to 66% in lost-time injuries.
Through this training, OSHA helps ensure workers are more knowledgeable about workplace hazards and contribute to our nation's productivity.
OSHA-Authorized Online Outreach Training Provider
This training is offered through an affiliation with AdvanceOnline Solutions, Inc., who is an OSHA-Authorized Online Outreach Training Provider for this course.
Because this course is regulated closely by OSHA and offered through this affiliation, there are differences in how it is delivered when compared to most of the other online courses we offer.
OSHA recommends Outreach Training Program courses as an orientation to occupational safety and health for workers. When required by OSHA standards, workers must receive System Requirements on the specific hazards of the job.
The format of this course is quite different from our other courses and can be learned by viewing the Quick Start Tutorial on the first page of each content lesson. The tutorial is not required, but highly recommended.
Updated OSHA Policies
OSHA has recently issued a new policy that limits all OSHA Outreach Training (classroom and online) to a maximum of 7.5 hours of training per day in all OSHA 10 Hour courses. As a result, all 10 Hour courses must be delivered over a minimum of two days.
OSHA has also issued a new policy of Program Jurisdiction Restrictions. Outreach Training Programs are now limited to OSHA jurisdiction only. Student course completion cards can only be issued to students within U.S. jurisdiction (the 50 States and certain U.S. Territories).
180 Days To Complete
Students have 180 days to complete the training from the time they enroll in the course. When a course EXPIRES, the student will no longer have access to the course and any course progress will be lost. There can be no extensions for the OSHA Outreach titles.
