This course is designed for individuals interested in teaching the 10‑ and 30-hour general industry safety and health Outreach Training Program to their employees and other interested groups. Using the OSHA General Industry Standards as a guide, special emphasis is placed on those topics required in the 10- and 30-hour programs as well as those which are most hazardous. Students are briefed on effective instructional approaches and use of visual aids and handouts. This course allows the student to become a trainer in the OSHA Outreach Training Program, to conduct both 10- and 30-hour General Industry Outreach classes, and to issue cards to participants after verifying course completion. Students who wish to participate as authorized trainers in the OSHA Outreach Training Program must prepare a presentation on an assigned OSHA General Industry Outreach Training Program topic individually or as part of a group and successfully pass a written exam at the end of the course.
- Students must successfully complete the OSHA #511 Occupational Safety and Health Standards for General Industry course no longer than seven (7) years prior to registering for the trainer course.
- Have five (5) years of general industry safety experience. Please note that “working safely” in the industry does not meet the safety experience requirement.
A bachelor’s degree (or higher) in occupational safety and health, a Certified Safety Professional (CSP) or a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) designation may be substituted for two (2) years of work related experience.
Authorized OSHA Outreach Training Program trainers are required to attend an OSHA #503 Update for General Industry Outreach Trainers course at least once every four (4) years to maintain their trainer status. The OSHA #501 Trainer Course in Occupation Safety and Health Standards for General Industry may also be used to maintain a trainer’s authorized status.
