The OSHA Outreach Training Program teaches safety awareness and provides training for workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces. The program is intended as an orientation to OSHA standards and covers safety and health hazards workers may face on construction work sites, and also provides information regarding workers' rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint. This is a voluntary program and does not meet training requirements for any OSHA standards.
Through this program, workers can attend 10-hour or 30-hour classes delivered by OSHA-authorized trainers. The 10-hour class is intended for entry level workers, while the 30-hour class is more appropriate for supervisors or workers with some safety responsibility.
