Benefits of the OSHA 30-Hour Construction Course
Although OSHA recommends this OSHA 30-Hour Construction Training Course for construction personnel, it is not a mandatory course. However, there are some cities and states (like New York, the City of Philadelphia, the State of Nevada, etc.) that have laws requiring the OSHA 30-Hour Construction Course to be completed by supervisors on certain construction sites.
In addition, there are many private contractors, project owners, and government agencies (such as the VA) located throughout the United States who require workers and their supervisors to complete this 30-hour construction class to become eligible to work on their construction sites.
The OSHA 30-Hour Construction Industry Outreach Training course is a comprehensive safety program designed for anyone involved in the construction industry. Specifically devised for safety directors, foremen, and field supervisors, the program provides complete information on OSHA compliance issues.
