OSHA 10 Hour Training - Construction
The OSHA 10 hour construction training course is intended to provide construction workers with a basic knowledge of common safety and health hazards found on many construction sites. The OSHA 10 hour construction training course also provides students with an overview of how the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) operates. There are no prerequisites required to take the 10-hour construction course.
The OSHA 10-hour training course for construction is based on the federal OSHA 1926 construction standards. We also address state-specific OSHA requirements, where applicable. This OSHA 10 training course is intended for workers in construction related jobs, like ground-up construction projects, demolition work, and major renovation projects.
The OSHA 10 hour training course in construction standards was created by OSHA, who has authorized certain OSHA Outreach trainers to conduct this 10-hour training class for a group of workers in a classroom setting (usually spread over two consecutive days), or individual trainees can take our online version of the OSHA 10 hour training course at any time.
Here is the list of mandatory topics that must be taught in the OSHA 10-hour construction course. They take approximately seven hours to complete:
- Introduction to OSHA
- Focus Four (leading causes of death in construction)
- Struck-By (e.g., falling objects, trucks, cranes)
- Caught-In or Between (e.g., trench hazards, equipment)
- Personal Protective and Lifesaving Equipment
- Health Hazards in Construction
To fill out the rest of the on site OSHA 10-hour construction course, you can select from the following optional topics (online version topics are fixed):
- Confined Spaces for Construction
- Materials Handling, Storage, Use and Disposal
- Cranes, Derricks, Hoists, Elevators, & Conveyors
- Stairways and Ladders
- Tools - Hand and Power
- Bloodborne Pathogens
- Fire Protection and Prevention
When a student successfully completes an OSHA 10 hour construction training course (either live or online), they will receive the official DOL / OSHA 10 hour wallet card. The cards are accepted in all 50 states and US territories, and are also the OSHA wallet cards needed to prove compliance with those states (MO, NV, MA, NH, NJ, NY, RI, NJ, PA and CT) that have a mandatory OSHA 10-hour training law for workers on most publicly-funded construction sites.
