Authorized OSHA Trainers in Wyoming
There is no official certification required to teach most OSHA training classes in Wyoming. However, you must make certain that on site OSHA 10 or 30-hour training classes are conducted by a trainer who is officially authorized to conduct these 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 Wyoming 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 WY 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 WY 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 Wyoming 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 Wyoming
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 WY as well as all other states and US territories.
Regulation of Workplace Safety & Health in Wyoming
The State of Wyoming operates an approved State OSHA program that regulates OSHA training in most WY workplaces. The Wyoming State Plan was initially approved on May 3, 1974, and was granted final state plan approval to operate on June 27, 1985.
WY OSHA Training Regulations and Standards
The Wyoming State Plan adopts all federal standards identically except for 1910 Subpart A, B, and C, and 1926 Subpart A and B, which have been reworded to reflect the Wyoming’s Safety Act. Wyoming has also adopted the federal record-keeping and reporting requirements identical to the federal rule, 29 CFR 1904.
Wyoming has unique standards that cover Oil and Gas Well Drilling, Servicing, Special Servicing and Anchor Tester Requirements. Federal OSHA does not have specific standards for this industry. For Wyoming’s Occupational Safety and Health Standards, access the Wyoming Occupational Health and Safety’s website. Federal OSHA training requirements for construction and general industry are listed below on this page.
Since Wyoming does not have jurisdiction in maritime industries, the state has not adopted 29 CFR 1915, 1916, 1917, or 1918 or a state equivalent.
The Wyoming State Plan applies to all public and private sector places of employment in the State, with the exception of Federal employees (including those employed at Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks), the United States Postal Service (USPS), private sector maritime, employment at Warren Air Force Base and at the Naval Petroleum and Oil Shale Reserve in Casper, and certain agricultural related operations (field sanitation and temporary labor camps), which are subject to Federal OSHA jurisdiction.
