About this Course

What is 8-Hour EM 385-1-1 Training? 

EM 385-1-1 is the manual released by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) that outlines health and safety standards you must follow when working on military projects.  

The manual also states that if you are a Site Safety Health Officers (SSHO), you must complete 8 hours of safety and health coursework each year. Our 8-Hour EM 385-1-1 Training satisfies this requirement. 

The course refreshes you on the core safety concepts you need to understand from the EM 385-1-1 manual. You’ll learn valuable safety tips and best practices that will help you keep your construction site safe while reducing injuries and accidents. 

Who Should Take 8-Hour EM 385-1-1 Training?  

This course was designed for Site Safety Health Officers (SSHOs) who need their annual training or anyone else who needs a refresher on the essential elements of the EM 385 manual.

Which EM 385-1-1 Training Course Should I Take?     

Site Safety Health Officers (SSHOs) working on sites regulated by EM 385-1-1 need 40 hours of training in compliance with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Contractor Safety and Health Requirements.     

If you're a supervisor, crew leader, or manager working these sites, you need the 24-hour course instead. If you're a non-supervisory employee, then the 16-hour course is sufficient.    

For your annual refresher training, you’ll need to complete an 8-hour course.
