Safety in the workplace is a major concern for many employers. One possibility is to improve safety training by administering federal occupational health and safety (OSHA). OSHA was created by the act of OHS in 1970 to promote the safe and healthy workplace. OSHA offers many forms of training and certification. The most common is the OSHA 10 certification. Workers can receive certification to complete a 10 hour course which is offered as part of OSHA outreach training.
OSHA 10 hour Outreach Training Program
The training program is a voluntary safety course which aims to be an introduction to issues of health and safety. The courses are taught by authorized trainers who have completed courses to issue OSHA training courses. In 2004, approximately 300,000 workers completed safety training courses. In 2008, more than 675,000 workers were in classes of safety. This growth has occurred as more industries began to include training outreach programs as part of their general training. Industries that were incorporated into the training include the construction trade, general contractors, insurance companies, and manufacturing firms. There are two types of OSHA outreach training: general industry and construction.
