OSHA 10-Hour General Industry Courses

OSHA 10-Hour General Industry CoursesThe OSHA 10-Hour General Industry Health & Safety course trains general industry workers in important practices of occupational health and safety. This 10-hour training program provides instruction on OSHA regulations and requirements as they apply to general industry and teaches safety awareness, which assists workers in recognizing and reducing the risks of construction work site hazards. This class is required by many Federal and State jurisdictions in order to work on general industrial work sites. The OSHA 10 hour training course for general industry is based on the OSHA 1910 standards. We also address state-specific OSHA requirements, where applicable. This OSHA 10 training course is designed for workers in most factories and manufacturing operations, health care industries, transportation and warehousing, chemical plants, oil and gas production operations, and service industries. The OSHA 10 hour training course in general industry standards was created by OSHA, who has authorized certain OSHA Outreach trainers to conduct this 10-hour training class for a group of workers. The OSHA 10 training courses are presented in a classroom setting (usually spread over two consecutive days). Or, an individual trainee can take an online version of the OSHA 10 hour training course at any time.
