The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Outreach Training Program is a voluntary program to train workers in the basics of safety and health hazard recognition and prevention. OSHA authorizes trainers who complete general and construction industry train-the-trainer courses to conduct occupational safety and health classes for workers. OSHA has promoted workplace safety and health by authorizing trainers since 1971.



The 30-hour General Industry Outreach Training Program is intended to provide entry-level general industry worker information about their rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint as well as how to identify, abate, avoid, and prevent job-related hazards on a job site.

The training covers a variety of general industry safety and health hazards that a worker may encounter.
