This course is designed for persons in the private sector interested in developing safety and health programs in the construction industry. Special emphasis will be placed on those areas in construction that are the most hazardous, using OSHA standards as a guide. Course participants will also be taught effective training techniques. Participants who successfully complete the course and pass a multiple choice test will become outreach trainers, authorized to conduct both 10 and 30 hour construction courses. OSHA’s 29 CFR 1926 Construction Industry Standard will be provided.

Students will be asked to develop and present a 30-60 minute presentation during class time as part of the requirements to become an authorized trainer. To facilitate this, the use of a personal computer is welcomed into the course for the creating of the presentation.
Authorized Trainers must possess both an active Trainer Card and certificate of course completion. To obtain these two credentials, the student trainer must pass (80%) both the performance test and the knowledge test in the #500 course. Students that do no pass the test the first time will be given one opportunity for a retest. The retest result is final. A Letter of Attendance will be issued to students that do not meet the criteria to become an Authorized Trainer


Five years relevant experience in the construction safety and health field and attendance in a week long construction safety and health course (OTI 510) are both required prerequisites.

Time: 8:00am - 4:30pm      Price: $800
