List of outreach trainers now available online
OSHA has added a searchable list of authorized Outreach trainers to its website make it easier for you to find authorized instructors for the 10- and 30-hour Outreach classes. The list provides trainer names and contact information, and indicates which course the trainer is authorized to teach (construction, general industry, maritime, or disaster site worker classes).
The OSHA Outreach Training Program provides training on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of workplace hazards. Outreach classes also provide overview information regarding OSHA, including workers' rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint.
Students receive an OSHA 10-hour or 30-hour course completion card at the end of the training.
The Outreach Training Program has grown significantly since its inception in 1971. Between FY 2012 and FY 2016, it trained more than 3.94 million workers in job hazard recognition and avoidance through the program.
Outreach training does not fulfill the training requirements found in OSHA standards; those require employers to provide additional training for their workers on specific hazards of their job
OSHA expects the online list to grow as more Outreach trainers are added. If you are a trainer who is interested in having your information listed, contact your Authorizing Training Organization.
