OSHA 10 Hour General Industry Training Courses
The Online OSHA 10 Hour General Industry course is designed to provide general occupational safety and health training to workers without supervisory responsibility. The course will help workers learn about their rights, employer responsibilities, filing a complaint with OSHA, as well as workplace hazard identification, avoidance, and prevention. Workers will become more knowledgeable about workplace hazards and how to prevent workplace injuries.
Per OSHA Program Requirements, all outreach training is limited to a maximum of 7.5 hours of training per day, whether online or in the classroom. As a result, this course must be delivered over a minimum of two days.
Outreach training programs are also now limited to OSHA jurisdiction. Course completion cards can only be issued to students within the 50 U.S. States and certain United States Territories.
OSHA requires that all participants in this OSHA Outreach online course complete their training within 180 days of commencing the course. Different from most of our training courses, after 180 days this course will expire and the student will no longer be able to access the course and course progress will be lost. We are not able to offer time extensions on OSHA Outreach courses.

The course is provided through an affiliation with AdvanceOnline Solutions, Inc., who is an OSHA Authorized Online Outreach Provider for this course. Since the course is offered through this affiliation, and due to OSHA program requirements, the system requirements and delivery format when viewing this course are different than most of our other courses.
