The OSHA 30 hour general industry training course also provides students with an overview of how the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) operates.
The OSHA 30 hour training course for general industry is based on the OSHA 1910 general industry regulations, and each student at an on site class will receive their own copy of the OSHA general industry standards as part of their 30-hour course materials. This OSHA 30 general industry training course is intended for operations such as factories and most manufacturing sites, healthcare providers, warehousing, and service industries.
The OSHA 30 hour training course in general industry standards was created by OSHA, who authorizes certain OSHA Outreach trainers to conduct this 30-hour training class for a group of trainees. The OSHA 30 general industry training course is presented in a classroom setting (usually spread over four consecutive days), or individual trainees can take an online OSHA 30 hour general industry training course.
