OSHA 10 or 30 Hour General Industry Training

OSHA stands for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, an agency of the U.S.
Department of Labor. OSHA’s responsibility is to improve worker safety and health protection.
On December 29, 1970, President Richard Nixon signed the OSH Act. This Act created OSHA,
the agency, which officially came into effect on April 28, 1971.


OSHA’s mission is to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women
by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance
to employers and employees.


Since OSHA’s requirements outline the importance of training, employers and employees are
provided with two options when selecting the appropriate training.


OSHA 10 and 30-Hour Outreach Training Programs provides workers and employers with
necessary skills on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health

hazards in workplaces. The program also provides information regarding worker's rights,
employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint with OSHA.


Through these programs, workers can choose from the OSHA 10 and 30-hour training classes
delivered by OSHA authorized trainers. Our OSHA 10-hour class is intended for entry-level
workers, while the 30-hour class is more appropriate for supervisors or workers with some safety
responsibility. Through this training, OSHA helps to ensure that workers are more
knowledgeable about workplace hazards and their rights under OSHA.


Our instructors are authorized by OSHA to deliver the OSHA 10 or 30 Hour General Industry
course to your employees.
