When it comes to safety training, there’s no opting out. Becoming knowledgeable and comfortable in the workplace is pretty important, and it could someday save your life.
The acronym OSHA stands for Occupational Safety & Health Administration. “Administration” can also be changed out for “Act.” This organization, and act, which was put in place in 1970, helps standardize and regulate private sector industries to make sure they are taking the proper safety precautions and following all of the rules laid out for them. Within industries such as construction, there are safety courses required by OSHA to train employees to be safe and health-minded. Two particular courses offered by us are OSHA 10 Hour Construction Course, and OSHA 30 Hour Construction Outreach Training. There are also 10 and 30 hour courses for general industry, meaning anyone outside of construction.
In 2011, it was recorded that some 4,609 workers were killed on job sites. Of those, 4,188 were in the private industry, 738 specifically in construction. This is a large number of deaths that could be prevented just by simply providing training courses to workers in the workplace. This is why we offer OSHA 30 hour and 10 hour training courses to those who need them.
The OSHA 10 hour construction course that we offer is mainly for construction workers who are working on a construction site. The OSHA 30 hour course, however, is designed for foremen, site supervisors, and safety directors. Because they are the ones who are making sure that all of the workers are acting in a safe manner, they need to be fairly well versed in the area of safety within their workplace.
For all of the courses that we offer, both the OSHA 30 hour and OSHA 10 hour, there are quizzes at the end of each section and a final exam at the end of the course to keep you engaged in the course material. We provide you with a broad range of teachings and a study guide to help you complete your safety training course and get working as quickly as. Each course will provide workers with general knowledge about a number of different safety and health hazards that they may encounter on the job site, as well as how to deal with them and prevent them.
When working in an industry that has a high number of fatal injuries and illnesses, it is important to take all of the necessary precautions that you can. Participating in our OSHA 30 hour or 10 hour courses could mean the difference between life and death.
