OSHA Outreach Trainers

The OSHA Outreach Training Program is an integral part of occupational safety and health training. This voluntary program promotes workplace safety and health and makes workers more knowledgeable about workplace hazards and their rights.

Authorized OSHA Outreach Trainers deliver 10-hour and 30-hour outreach classes to workers in these areas for construction, general industry, maritime, and disaster site workers. Outreach trainers are responsible for following the most current OSHA Outreach Training Program Requirements.
