Safety on the job site should never be overlooked. It is essential that everyone who is present on the worksite understands the hazards and knows of ways to manage the risks they are facing. OSHA requires its employers to provide training to workers who face daily hazards while on the job. Below you will find helpful resources and links that you can use to ensure your job site is not only up to code, but also as safe as possible for all present.
Training Requirements and Resources
Before your workers engage in any hazardous activities, it is important and essential that they receive the proper training, as defined by OSHA standards. OSHA’s “Training Requirements and Resources” aims to help employers understand what it is obligated to provide its workers with, before allowing them to participate in potentially hazardous activities.
Outreach Training (10-Hour or 30-Hour Cards)
Outreach training serves as a basic hazardous awareness class. These classes provide workers with basic and advanced training regarding common safety and health hazards while on the job. While they are not required by OSHA, there are some areas and employers that do require them, and besides, it never hurts to provide your workers with even more safety training. These classes are to be held only by OSHA-authorized trainers, which you can talk to Foy Safety about for more information!
OSHA Training Institute Education Centers
OSHA’s training institute educational centers are a national network of non-profit organizations, authorized by OSHA, to provide workers with basic and advanced safety training, as a means to increase job site safety. These educational centers provide both the public and private sectors with occupational safety and health training.
