Becoming an Authorized OSHA Outreach Trainer

OSHA authorizes trainers to conduct occupational safety and health training for the OSHA Outreach Training Program. Upon successful completion of the applicable OSHA trainer course, trainers are authorized for a period of four years to teach students 10-hour and 30-hour courses in construction or general industry safety and health hazards, or two-day courses for disaster site workers (second responders). Authorized trainers also receive federal OSHA course completion cards to distribute to their students.

To become an authorized OSHA Outreach Trainer, a person must complete/meet the necessary prerequisite requirements and complete a required OSHA trainer course.
