OSHA Authorized Trainers in Alabama
It is important to make certain that your on site OSHA 10 or 30-hour training class in Alabama is conducted by a trainer who is officially authorized to conduct live OSHA Outreach courses. The trainer must first complete a series of OSHA trainer classes provided by one of the OSHA Education centers located around the country. You can confirm their status as a currently authorized OSHA Outreach trainer by asking to look at their credentials proving they completed the following trainer courses.
Construction industry trainers must successfully complete the OSHA 510 course, followed by the OSHA 500 course. This qualifies the trainer to conduct OSHA 10-hour construction training in Alabama and anywhere else in the USA and territories for a four-year period. The trainer is also authorized to conduct OSHA 30-hour construction training in Alabama and elsewhere. To maintain their status as an authorized OSHA Outreach trainer for construction, they must complete the OSHA 502 trainer update course every four years.
General industry trainers must successfully complete the OSHA 511 course, followed by the OSHA 501 course. This qualifies the trainer to conduct OSHA 10-hour general industry training in Alabama and anywhere else in the USA and territories for a four-year period. The trainer is also authorized to conduct OSHA 30-hour general industry training in Alabama and elsewhere. To maintain their status as an authorized OSHA Outreach trainer for general industry, they must complete the OSHA 503 trainer update course every four years.

Online OSHA 10 and 30-hour Training Courses Accepted in Alabama
There are also OSHA-authorized online 10 and 30-hour training courses available for construction and general industry. However, you must pay close attention, as only those course providers that are specifically authorized to provide these courses can issue trainees the official DOL / OSHA 10 or 30-hour wallet cards. There are plenty of imitators out there who use deceptive fine print and “too good to be true” pricing to sell you a course that is not OSHA authorized. You can rest assured that the 10 and 30-hour online OSHA training courses offered on our website are authorized by OSHA, and are accepted in Alabama as well as all other states and US territories.

Alabama Law Requiring Formation Of a Safety Committee
The federal OSHA standards do not contain any requirement for employers to form a safety committee at their companies. However, the state of Alabama has a unique code that requires certain employers in the state to establish a workplace safety committee. Refer to the state code of Alabama – Title 25: Industrial Relations and Labor – Section 25-5-15- Safety Committee, which states:
Upon the written request of any employee, each employer subject to the workers’ compensation law shall appoint a safety committee. The safety committee shall consist of not less than three committee members, one of whom must be a non-supervisory employee. The safety committee shall advise the employer regarding safety in the work place, including suggestions from employees regarding safety conditions in the work place. Any employee shall have the right to notify the safety committee of a safety condition in the work place. The safety committee shall develop procedures by which an employee may give such notification. The provisions of this section shall not apply to any employer who now or in the future has an established safety committee pursuant to contract or agreement with its employees or their representative.
