Course Overview

AdvanceOnline Solutions

This OSHA 30 Hour Construction Safety Online course provides a variety of training to workers with some safety responsibility, typically foremen or supervisors.

The training provides greater depth on an expanded list of topics associated with workplace hazards for construction safety and health hazards which a worker may encounter at a construction site, as opposed to the 10 Hour OSHA Construction Safety course that is for workers without supervisory responsibility.

The training emphasizes hazard identification, avoidance, control and prevention, not OSHA standards.

Employers who have trained their workers with the OSHA Outreach Program for Construction have seen reductions of up to 66% in lost-time injuries.

Through this training, OSHA helps to ensure that workers are more knowledgeable about workplace hazards and contribute to our nation's productivity.

OSHA-Authorized Online Outreach Training Provider

This training is offered through an affiliation with AdvanceOnline Solutions, Inc., who is an OSHA-Authorized Online Outreach Training Provider for this course.

Because this course is regulated closely by OSHA and offered through this affiliation, there are differences in how it is delivered when compared to most of the other online courses we offer. Learn more in the About section.

OSHA recommends Outreach Training Program courses as an orientation to occupational safety and health for workers. When required by OSHA standards, workers must receive additional training on the specific hazards of the job.

Format

The format of this course is quite different from other Safety Unlimited courses and can be learned by viewing the Quick Start Tutorial on the first page of each content lesson. The tutorial is not required, but highly recommended.

Updated OSHA Policies

OSHA has issued a new policy that limits all OSHA Outreach Training (classroom and online) to a maximum of 7.5 hours of training per day in all OSHA 30 Hour courses. As a result, all 30 Hour courses must be delivered over a minimum of four days.

OSHA has also issued a new policy of Program Jurisdiction Restrictions. Outreach Training Programs are now limited to OSHA jurisdiction only. Student course completion cards can only be issued to students within U.S. jurisdiction (the 50 States and certain U.S. Territories).

Exams

OSHA requires students to pass each section exam and the final exam with a minimum of a 70% score. If a student fails any exam three times, the course will be placed in failed status and the student will be informed of his or her option to retake the course either online or in the classroom.

180 Days To Complete

Students have 180 days to complete the training from the time they enroll in the course. When a course EXPIRES, the student will no longer have access to the course and any course progress will be lost. There can be no extensions for the OSHA Outreach titles.

Customer Support

Safety Unlimited will provide much of the customer support with regard to access to your account and billing, but course content questions and technical support may be referred to AdvanceOnline Solutions.

Our Learning Management System tracks your progress, allowing you to switch between your computer and mobile device without retaking any training content. You can stop training in the middle of a section on one device and pick it up at the same spot on another. There is no need to complete an entire section in order to move from one device to another.

We are working on making ALL of our online courses MOBILE DEVICE READY. This gives you, the customer, the choice and flexibility to take our online training on your desktop, laptop, handheld device, wherever you may be.

Growing Pains

Because this is a Beta version of our course, you may encounter some issues as we work out the kinks. If you have difficulties with this course, please contact Customer Support.
