Introduction to OSHA

(UPDATED JAN 2018)

The MANDATORY 1-hour Introduction to OSHA Module must be used by all Outreach Trainers who currently offer the 10-Hour and 30-Hour Construction, General Industry and Maritime Outreach Training.

The revised content covers workers’ rights, employer responsibilities and how to file a complaint. It includes helpful worker safety and health resources. It also provides samples of a weekly fatality and catastrophe report, safety data sheet and the OSHA Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA form 300). Materials include an Instructor Guide, PowerPoint slides, student handouts, and participatory activities. The revised curriculum is designated as “Required Content” to be used in these Outreach Training Programs.

The revised module must be presented as developed with no substantive changes.
