OSHA 500 Trainer Course in OSHA Standards for Construction

October 28 @ 8:00 AM - October 31 @ 5:00 PM

Class sponsored by: CIS

Instructor: Paul McCain | This course is designed for people interested in teaching the 10 and 30-hour construction safety and health outreach program to their employees and other interested groups. Special emphasis is placed on those topics that are required in the 10 and 30-hour programs as well as on those that are the most hazardous, using OSHA standards as a guide. Course participants are briefed on effective instructional approaches and the effective use of visual aids and handouts. This course allows the student to become a trainer in the Outreach Program and to conduct both a 10- and 30-hour construction safety and health course and to issue cards to participants verifying course completion. Prerequisites: Course #510 and five years of construction safety experience. A college degree in occupational safety and health, a Certified Safety Professional (CSP) or a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) designation, in the applicable training area may be substituted for two (2) years of experience. (Please note, the 30-hour Construction OSHA outreach class is not considered equivalent to OSHA #510. Also, the 510 course must have been completed in the last 7 years. If you completed the course longer than 7 years ago, then you will need to retake it in order to qualify.)
