OSHA #500 - Trainer Course in OSHA Standards for Construction

This course is designed for personnel in the private sector interested in teaching the 10-hour and 30-hour construction safety and health outreach program to their employees and other interested groups. Special emphasis is placed on those topics that are required in the 10-hour and 30-hour programs as well as on those that are the most hazardous, using OSHA standards as a guide. Course participants are briefed on effective instructional approaches and the effective use of visual aids and handouts. This course allows the student to become a trainer in the Outreach Program and to conduct both a 10-hour and 30-hour construction safety and health course and to issue cards to participants verifying course completion. A laptop is strongly recommended. 

Outreach Trainer Cards: Students in this class must successfully pass both a written and performance evaluation in order to earn 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. Outreach trainers are required to attend OSHA #502 at least once every four years to maintain their trainer status. Need a replacement card?
