What Is OSHA?
Congress created the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 to ensure workers’ safe and healthy working conditions. It follows a set of standards enforced by authorized training, outreach, education, and assistance. The group that oversees the enforcement of the standards and training is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), part of the United States Department of Labor. The Occupation Safety and Health Act covers most private sector employers and their workers as well as some public sector employers and workers.
Why Is OSHA Training Important?
The OSHA training course was developed to help promote safety and a healthy environment in the workplace while providing workers with more knowledge about hazards and employee rights. The program is voluntary; however, it is strongly recommended and has grown significantly since its development in 1971. By equipping workers with the appropriate safety training courses, companies can be confident they’re doing their part to create a safer work environment since employees will understand how to recognize, avoid, and prevent hazards and accidents. In return, this can save businesses a lot of money in accident investigations, lost production, injuries, and workers’ compensation suits.
Who Should Take the OSHA 10-Hour Card Course?
The 10-hour card class is a general industry overview of workplace safety and hazard prevention intended for entry-level workers. The focus is on a variety of common hazards a worker may encounter on any type of job site. It is an excellent education for entry-level laborers that may be employed in:
- Industrial work
- Construction sites
- Factory operations
- And more
What Does the Class Cover?
The OSHA 10HR General Industry Outreach Training is designed to give a general understanding of workplace safety for entry-level workers. It does not fulfill the training requirements found in OSHA standards. Still, many employers require workers to carry OSHA cards, and taking this course will meet that requirement. Upon completion, students will have an understanding of:
- Information regarding OSHA
- Hazard recognition and avoidance
- General workplace safety
- Workers’ rights
- Employer responsibilities
- How to file a complaint
Benefits of the Program
Completing the OSHA 10-hour card program benefits individuals as well as the organizations they work for. A safe workplace is more productive, has better morale among employees, and promotes a positive environment. The benefits of taking this course are:
- It promotes a safe environment through peer training
- Individuals actively participate in hands-on activities
- We can tailor programs to individual specific needs
- Explains the value of safety and health for coworkers
How Long Is the Course?
This 10-hour course is completed over a 2-day period in any of our four locations. As we like to say here, the course only lasts two days, but the knowledge gained will last a lifetime. The 10-hour card will never expire. However, an employer may require you to retake the course every few years.
