OSHA 10 and 30-Hour General Industry Program

The Outreach Training Program for General Industry provides basic safety and health information and education for workers and employers. It covers recognition, avoidance, abatement and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces in general industry. The program also provides information regarding workers’ rights, employer responsibilities and how to file a complaint.

Participants can attend either a 10 or 30-hour class. The 10-hour class is ideal for anyone with safety and health responsibilities or that deals with employee safety and health awareness. It provides workers with an awareness of common job-related safety and health hazards. The 30-hour class is more appropriate for supervisors or others with safety responsibility and provides participants with an in-depth study of hazard identification, avoidance, control and prevention in the workplace. It includes information on workplace hazards and worker rights.

Upon completion of this course, participants have the following knowledge:  

  • Be able to define general industry terms
  • Identify hazards occurring in general industry
  • Locate and determine appropriate OSHA General Industry Standards, policies and procedures
  • Describe the use of OSHA General Industry Standards and regulations to supplement an ongoing safety and health program

 **It is important to note that this is a voluntary program and does not meet the training requirements for any OSHA standards. Although some states, municipalities or others may require outreach training as a condition of employment, it is not an OSHA requirement. None of the courses within the Outreach Training Program is considered a certification.
