Course Description

The Trainer Course in Occupational Safety & Health Standards for General Industry (OSHA #501) is designed for individuals interested in teaching the 10 and 30-hour general industry safety and health Outreach training program to their employees and other interested groups. Using the OSHA General Industry Standards as a guide, special emphasis is placed on those topics required in the 10- and 30-hour programs as well as those which are most hazardous. Students are briefed on effective instructional approaches and use of visual aids and handouts. This course allows the student to become a trainer in the OSHA Outreach Training Program, to conduct both 10- and 30-hour General Industry Outreach classes, and to issue cards to participants after verifying course completion. Students who wish to participate as authorized trainers in the OSHA Outreach Training Program must prepare a presentation on an assigned OSHA General Industry Outreach Training Program topic individually or as part of a group and successfully pass a written exam at the end of the course.

NOTE: In order to maintain trainer status, Authorized OSHA Outreach Trainers are required to attend Update for General Industry Outreach Trainers (OSH503) course every four years.

Prerequisites

Participants must verify the following prerequisites have been met prior to registering for this course:

These prerequisites may be accomplished by uploading a copy of the documents during registration using the TEEX Student Portal. Once received and approved, the Participant will be notified by email they have met all prerequisites and have been added to the class roster. All documentation is due at least 14 business days prior to the start of class.

Course Completion Requirements

Student Must Provide

Completed OSHA Outreach Trainer Prerequisite Verification Form

OSHA Licensing Requirements

  • Participants must score a minimum of 50 points (67%) on the Performance Test
  • Participants must score a minimum of 40 points (80%) on the final written Knowledge Test

Attendance Requirements

TEEX and the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) have an attendance policy that requires participants to fully attend an enrolled class in its entirety (100% of the course). We realize that extenuating circumstances may arise that would take a participant out of class and have a policy to handle those situations. If a participant misses less than 20% of the class, he/she may be able to perform makeup work equivalent to the class time missed. If 20% or more of the class is missed, the participant may attend a makeup course upon approval by TEEX’s OTI Education Center Director.

Recommended

Student May Bring

In order to fully participate in all student teaching assignments, candidate instructors should bring a personal computer or laptop.

The practice scenarios working within a group of my collegues and peers was most helpful. It was tabletops with the why and all parties, players, and stakeholders in the same room.
