What is OSHA Outreach Training?
OSHA Outreach Training is the best method for workers to perform their jobs safely and is an investment that will pay back over and over again in fewer injuries and illnesses, better morale, lower insurance premiums and more.
- The 10-hour OSHA Outreach training program was designed for any construction or general industry employee, but is primarily intended for the entry level worker.
- The 30-hour OSHA Outreach training program is extensive instruction intended for safety directors, foremen, or field supervisors.
What are the benefits of OSHA Outreach Training?
The OSHA Outreach Training Program provides instruction and training on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of workplace hazards. The OSHA outreach Training Program also provides an overview of OSHA, regarding workers' rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint.
Aside from the obvious benefit of keeping employees safe, healthy, and productive, meeting the OSHA workplace safety standards - OSHA training makes financial sense for employers because:
- Every dollar spent on proper health and safety programs can save a business $4 to $6! 
- With less work-related illnesses and injuries, employers see significant savings on absenteeism and workers’ compensation insurance. 
- According to one study by California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA), businesses inspected by OSHA “saved an estimated $355,000 in injury claims and compensation paid for lost work” in the four years after inspections. 
- Businesses that meet OSHA’s standards avoid inspection violations and possible fines.
Why should I get OSHA Outreach Training?
Business Injuries and Cost. Each year, approximately 6,000 employees in this country die from workplace injuries while another 50,000 die from illnesses caused by exposure to workplace hazards. In addition, 6 million workers suffer non-fatal workplace injuries at an annual cost to U.S. businesses of more than $125 billion. 
Required by Employers. Many OSHA standards explicitly require employers to train new employees in the safety and health aspects of their jobs. Other OSHA standards make it the employer's responsibility to limit certain job assignments to employees who are "certified," "competent," or "qualified."
Safety Awareness. The 10-hour class is intended to provide workers with a basic awareness of common job-related safety and health hazards, while the 30-hour class is more appropriate for supervisors or workers with some safety responsibility. Through this training, workers are more knowledgeable about workplace hazards and their rights, and contribute safely to our nation's productivity.
