What is 30 Hour OSHA Online Training?
When you’re responsible for keeping a construction site safe and secure, you need every tool you can get. Our OSHA 30-Hour Outreach Training for Construction teaches you precisely what you need to know to build a culture of safety and reduce job-site accidents.
Additionally, you’ll receive a comprehensive overview of the policies, procedures, and best practices in OSHA’s 29 CFR 1926 standards for construction. The course also covers vital information about all the significant hazards found on a construction site.
For example, you’ll learn how to create and implement a safety and health program that addresses critical safety topics in the construction industry, such as stairways and ladders, confined spaces, hand and power tools, scaffolding, and explosives and blasting agents.
What Is OSHA 30 Certification?
OSHA does not certify workers, so there is no such thing as OSHA certification. However, OSHA does mandate that employers train their employees in the specific safety and health parts of their jobs.
The closest you can get to certification is OSHA Outreach training. When you pass an OSHA 30 test, you'll receive an official Department of Labor card.
