OSHA stands for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor. OSHA’s responsibility is to improve worker safety and health protection.
On December 29, 1970, President Richard Nixon signed the OSH Act. This Act created OSHA, the agency, which officially came into effect on April 28, 1971.
OSHA’s mission is to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education, and assistance to employers and employees.
Since OSHA’s requirements outline the importance of training, employers and employees are provided with two options when selecting the appropriate training.
OSHA 10 and 30-Hour Outreach Training Programs provide workers and employers with the necessary skills on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces.
The program also provides information regarding workers’ rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint with OSHA.
Through these programs, workers can choose from the OSHA 10 and 30-hour training classes delivered by OSHA authorized trainers.
Our OSHA 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.
Through this training, OSHA helps to ensure that workers are more knowledgeable about workplace hazards and their rights under OSHA.
Our instructors are authorized by OSHA to deliver both, OSHA 10 and 30 Hour General Industry and Construction Industry courses to your employees.
