The OSHA 30-Hour General Industry course was created by Summit Training Source, an authorized training provider. The course is designed to take four days to complete and provides an expansive list of safety topics associated with workplace hazards including, but not limited to recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of hazards.
Participants of the OSHA 30-Hour General Industry training can expect that this training features the required steps of completing OSHA Outreach Training, receiving a valid OSHA-Card, and achieving the safety level prescribed by individual employers for work within the General Industry sector.
We’ve created some helpful guidelines that can assist employees and employers in deciding which course may best suit your needs.
Is OSHA 10 or 30 Training Mandatory?
While OSHA Outreach training is a voluntary program that does not require workers to complete, employers, unions, and your state or local jurisdiction may make it mandatory to take OSHA 10 or 30 training. Always check with your employer or local government to ensure you are adequately trained for your role.
All workers can benefit from OSHA safety training. Many employers use 10-hour or 30-hour OSHA Outreach training as a baseline introduction to workplace safety hazards and workers’ rights under OSHA. Following this course, your employer may require you to complete additional training on site-specific hazards you might encounter on the job.
Do I Need Construction or General Industry OSHA Training?
We offer two types of training — Construction Industry and General Industry — that feature specialized topics depending on the industry chosen. Generally, employers will instruct their employees on which version of Outreach training will be needed, so if you are unsure, please contact your employer to find out which training you need. Occupational Safety and Health Administration defines “construction work” as work for construction, alteration and/or repair, including painting and decorating.
General Industry refers to any industry not included in construction, maritime or agriculture. It includes (but is not limited to): health care, manufacturing, warehousing, distribution and retail.
Taken directly from Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards, these descriptions are the best guidelines to determine which course would be best suited for your job. But another option is to check out the types of topics covered in each course and decide which are more relevant to the types of workplaces you will be in. If the course you choose does not cover any important topics that you will encounter on a worksite, make sure to supplement training with Compliance Training or on-the-job training.
10-Hour Or 30-Hour?
The 10-Hour training course is sufficient for many entry-level workers, but the actual requirements will depend on what your workplace wants. 30-Hour training is generally recommended for supervisors, site leads or managers who will have any sort of safety responsibility. 30-Hour training not only goes a bit more in-depth on the topics, but also includes a wider breadth of topics.
Still have questions about which may be best for you or your workers? Our knowledgeable staff is ready to help in any way they can!
