Course Description: The 30-hour Construction Outreach Training Program is intended to provide a variety of training to workers with some safety responsibility. Workers must receive additional training on hazards specific to their job. Training emphasizes hazard identification, avoidance, control and prevention, not OSHA Standards. Students successfully completing the hourly and course requirements will be issued a 30-hour Dept. of Labor Outreach card. Topics include 12 mandatory subject hours, 12 optional subject hours and six hours on “other” construction hazards or policies.
Particular emphasis is placed on the OSHA Focus Four Hazards:
• Fall Protection (e.g., floors, platforms, roofs)
• Electrical (e.g., overhead power lines, power tools and cords, temporary wiring, grounding)
• Struck by (e.g. falling objects, trucks, cranes, constructing masonry walls)
• Caught in/between (e.g., trench hazards, unguarded machinery, equipment)
At least two hours will be spent on the following subjects:
• Introduction to OSHA
• Personal Protective and Lifesaving Equipment
• Health Hazards in Construction
• And at least one hour on Stairways and ladders.
The 30-hour Construction Outreach courses are based on hazard recognition and awareness, and is not considered equivalent to the OSHA Course #510.
