OSHA 10 Hour training for construction helps construction workers get up to speed on basic safety and health hazards on construction sites. The OSHA 10 hour construction training course also provides students with an overview of how the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) functions.
The OSHA 10 hour training course for construction is based on the OSHA 1926 construction standards. This OSHA 10 training course is intended for workers in construction related jobs, like new construction projects, demolition jobs, and major renovation projects.
The OSHA 10 hour training course in construction standards was created by OSHA, who authorizes OSHA Outreach trainers to conduct this 10-hour training class for a group of students. The OSHA 10 10 hour Construction training course is presented in a classroom setting (spread over two consecutive days), or individual trainees can take an online OSHA 10 hour training course.
When a student successfully completes an OSHA 10 hour construction training course, they will receive the official OSHA 10 hour construction course wallet card. The cards are accepted in all 50 states, and are also the cards needed to prove compliance with all states that have mandatory OSHA 10 hour training laws. Here are the mandatory topics taught in the OSHA 10 hour construction course. They take approximately seven hours to complete:
• Introduction to OSHA • Focus Four (leading causes of death on construction sites) ◦ Falls ◦ Electrocution ◦ Caught-In or Between (e.g., trench hazards, equipment) ◦ Struck-By (e.g., falling objects, trucks, cranes) • Personal Protective and Lifesaving Equipment • Health Hazards in Construction
You can select a few of the following optional topics to fill out the rest of your OSHA 10-hour construction course:
• Bloodborne Pathogens • Cranes, Derricks, Hoists, Elevators, & Conveyors • Excavations • Fire Protection and Prevention • Materials Handling, Storage, Use and Disposal • Scaffolds • Stairways and Ladders • Tools - Hand and Power
Gather up a group of workers and have the safety professionals from the OSHA Training services network of OSHA-authorized Outreach trainers conduct the OSHA 10 hour construction training course at your site.
