Training Requirements in OSHA Standards and Training Guidelines

OSHA Outreach Training is Designed For Workers

OSHA Outreach Training Program provides training on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of workplace hazards. Outreach classes also provide overview information regarding OSHA, including workers’ rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint. In many states across the Unites State initially the Outreach program was a voluntary program but currently many states have crafted legislation to make it mandatory for employees. The City of Philadelphia is now requiring  OSHA 10 hour safety training (or equivalent) for ALL workers performing construction or demolition activities in which permits have been issued (click here). In NY any public project where the contract is greater then $250,000 requires all employees to have their OSHA 10 or 30 plus re-certification every 5 years (click here).
