30 Hour General Industry Outreach


The OSHA 30 Hour General Industry Outreach Training course is a  comprehensive safety training program designed for anyone involved in general industry. Specifically designed for safety directors, foremen,  and supervisors; the program provides complete information on OSHA  compliance issues. In addition to learning about safety and health hazards in the workplace, students will also learn about OSHA, employer responsibilities, and worker rights. Students will also learn about:

  • Hazard recognition
  • Avoidance
  • Abatement
  • Prevention

OSHA recommends Outreach Training Programs as an orientation to occupational safety and health for workers covered by OSHA 29 CFR 1910.  Employees must receive additional training, when required by OSHA  standards, on specific hazards of the job. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive an OSHA 30-Hour General Industry  Outreach DOL course completion card within 6 to 8 weeks.

The 30 hr General Industry Outreach Course is NOT equivalent to the  OSHA 510 or 511 courses and will not meet the course prerequisites to take the OSHA 500 or OSHA 501 courses.
