What is OSHA 10-hour Training?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a federal agency under the US Department of Labor that helps to make sure that workers are safe on the job. In order to make sure that employees are safe, OSHA requires training for those who may be exposed to hazards in the workplace which could result in illness, injury or unacceptable risks due to non-compliance of the employer.
One of the most common courses is OSHA 10-Hour Training. It helps employers and employees learn how to reduce and report various work hazards. There are basically two different types of OSHA 10 training. One is for general industry, and the other is for construction. National Environmental Trainers offers a host of safety training and compliance courses, including OSHA 10 Training for Construction. Our online OSHA 10 construction safety course provides construction supervisors, workers and other related personnel with awareness of health concerns and safety risks frequently encountered in the construction industry. Some of the learning objectives of the course include use of electrical safety and controlling hazardous energy, fall protection, fire prevention, cranes and rigging, excavations and trenches, power tools and guarding, handling materials, and ladders and stairways.
The course is monitored by the student's log-in and log-out. Each individual must complete a minimum of 10 hours of safety training in this course. Since the students can work at their own pace, some may exceed 10 hours. The course contains a number of quizzes and a final exam. Upon completion, students receive a Department of Labor OSHA Construction Safety and Health 10-hour course completion card.
