This course is designed for private sector personnel from all types of industries to present detailed information on how the provisions of the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act may be implemented in the workplace. Rights and responsibilities under the OSH Act, the appeals process, recordkeeping, and voluntary protection programs are covered. The course also includes an introduction to OSHA’s General Industry standards and an overview of the requirements of the more frequently referenced standards. Participants who successfully complete the course and pass a multiple choice test will become outreach trainers, authorized to conduct both 10 and 30 hour General Industry courses. OSHA’s 29 CFR 1910 General Industry Standard (1900- 1910.999 and 1910.1000 to end) 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 #501 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.
