The OSHA Outreach Training Program is OSHA’s primary way to train workers in the basics of occupational safety and health. The OSHA General Industry Outreach Training Programs were developed by the OSHA Training Institute with the intent to assist employers in training and introducing employees to the basic practices of identifying, reducing, eliminating, and reporting hazards associated with their work.
Over the past three years, over 1.3 million students have received training through this program.
OSHA Certification Training
OSHA stands for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. It was created in 1970 to prevent hazardous working conditions. To do so, OSHA requires workers to complete safety compliance training courses covering lessons on how to eliminate or reduce occupational injury, illness, and death. OSHA courses are here to assist U.S. employers in staying compliant with training obligations outlined in OSHA Standards.
