30-Hour Construction Industry (29CFR 1926)
What is OSHA 30 Construction Training?
When you’re responsible for reducing the risk of injuries on a construction site, you need access to resources and a comprehensive training background to ensure jobsite safety. Specifically devised for safety directors, foremen, and field supervisors; ASC’s 30-Hour Construction Industry Training provides a deep-dive into the CFR 1926 OSHA Construction Industry Standards.
OSHA’s 30 Hour Construction Industry Outreach Training Program is designed to teach students how to create and implement a safety and health program that addresses critical safety topics in the construction industry, such as stairways and ladders, confined spaces, hand and power tools, scaffolding, and excavations. Upon course completion, participants will be able to identify, assess and reduce the risk of workplace safety incidents.
Who Should Take OSHA 30 Construction Training?
The OSHA 30 Hour Construction Outreach course is for construction foremen, supervisors, and safety directors, or anyone who works in construction and requires additional training beyond the basics. Special emphasis will be placed on Client-specific workplace hazards.
Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a Certificate of completion. OSHA 30-Hour Construction DOL card will arrive within 6-8 weeks.
