Construction Industry

Construction Industry Safety

Construction is a high hazard industry that comprises a wide range of activities involving construction, alteration, and/or repair. Examples include residential construction, bridge erection, roadway paving, excavations, demolitions, and large scale painting jobs. Construction workers engage in many activities that may expose them to serious hazards, such as falling from rooftops, unguarded machinery, being struck by heavy construction equipment, electrocutions, silica dust, and asbestos.

OSHA Compliance

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 does not specifically address the responsibility of employers to provide health and safety information and instruction to employees. However, Section 5(a)(2) does require employers to "comply with occupational safety and health standards promulgated under this Act." In addition, more than 100 of the Act's current standards contain training requirements. In short, the employer needs to ensure their employees have received training for the hazards that exist in their workplace, and the equipment, policies, and procedures used to address those hazards. The employer is also required to document the identity of the employee, the date of training, and the means used to verify that the employee understood the training. When you purchase OSHAcademy's certificate packages and your employees complete a program or course, you receive the documentation needed to help meet OSHA's training requirements.

This training applies to the following employees:

10/30 Hour Outreach Training

OSHA recommends outreach courses as an orientation to occupational safety and health for workers. The OSHA outreach training programs are voluntary. However, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, New York City, Philadelphia, and Rhode Island have enacted laws mandating the training.

The 10-Hour OSHA Outreach Training Program is intended to provide instruction on a variety of construction industry safety and health standards to entry-level participants.

The OSHA 30 Hour Construction Industry Outreach Training Program is a comprehensive safety program designed for anyone involved in the construction industry, specifically geared for safety directors, foremen, and field supervisors.

OSHAcademy does not offer the outreach training program nor the DOL wallet cards. OSHAcademy does offer the OSHAcademy 10 and 30-hour Construction Safety and Health program, which include the required training topics of the OSHA construction outreach programs. When students complete all of the required courses for either program and they choose to document their training they will receive OSHAcademy course certificates, wallet cards, and transcripts.
