OSHA-Authorized Outreach Trainers

The OSHA Outreach Training Program is an integral part of occupational safety and health training. Through the program, individuals who complete a one-week OSHA trainer course are authorized to teach 10-hour and 30-hour courses in construction or general industry safety and health hazard recognition and prevention. Authorized trainers can receive OSHA course completion cards for their students. Over the past three years, over 1.6 million students have received training through this program.

OSHA periodically updates the requirements that authorized Outreach trainers must follow in conducting and reporting OSHA Outreach Training Program classes.

Key changes in the revised January, 2017, OSHA Outreach Training Program Requirements are summarized on the program fact sheet available for download to the right.
