OSHA #502 is an OSHA Outreach Trainer refresher course designed to ensure trainers of the Outreach Training Program demonstrate continued professional development in their field, and are able to identify, define and explain construction industry hazards and acceptable corrective measures as they continue to teach 10- and 30-hour OSHA Outreach courses in accordance with the 29 CFR 1926 OSHA Construction Standards and industry best practices. Emphasis is placed on up-to-date OSHA Construction Standards, effective adult learning principles, interactive training techniques and a demonstrated ability of facilitation skills. Students in this class must successfully pass both a written and performance evaluation in order to earn/renew their trainer card and the authorization to conduct 10-hour and 30-hour OSHA training. Any student not successfully passing BOTH portions will be issued a letter of attendance, but not a card or certificate. The OSHA #502 course is required at least once every 4 years to maintain trainer status.
