About This Course:
Successful completion of this course results in participants becoming OSHA-authorized trainers in OSHA’s Outreach Training Program for the Construction Industry. Authorized trainers can conduct both 10-hour and 30-hour construction industry classes that provide training to workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces along with information regarding workers’ rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a workplace safety complaint. OSHA-authorized trainers are able to issue 10 and 30-hour course completion cards to participants.

During the course, students will work with a partner to develop a presentation and teach an assigned OSHA Construction Industry Outreach topic, and successfully pass a written exam. Participants will be provided with a variety of training materials and resources.

Prerequisites:
  • OSHA #510 Occupational Safety and Health Standards for the Construction Industry (Please note, the 30-hour Construction OSHA outreach class is not considered equivalent to OSHA #510. Also, this course must have been completed in the last 7 years. If you completed the course longer than 7 years ago, then you will need to retake it in order to qualify.)
  • Five (5) years of construction industry safety experience

A completed and signed Prerequisite Verification Form and a copy of the OSHA #510 certificate must be uploaded to your account in REPORTER in order to confirm eligibility for this class. If you have questions about your eligibility, please email us at OTIprerequisite@ncsu.edu.
