What is OSHA Outreach Training?
The OSHA Outreach Training Program is intended for workers covered under the OSH Act. The Occupational Safety and Health Act covers private-sector employers and their employees in the 50 states and certain territories and jurisdictions under federal authority. For this reason, OSHA Outreach Training Program classes must be limited to training conducted within OSHA's jurisdiction.
While the OSHA Outreach Training Program course is voluntary and does not meet the training requirements contained in any OSHA standard, some states and local jurisdictions have enacted laws mandating outreach training. Additionally, some employers, unions, and various other jurisdictions also require workers to have this training to work on job sites and to fulfill their own safety training goals.
For a complete list of OSHA's training-related requirements, see OSHA Publication #2254, Training Requirements in OSHA Standards and Training Guidelines.

This training will take a minimum of 30 hours to complete, and is limited by OSHA to a maximum of 7 1/2 hours of training per day. Our standard 4-day delivery format will include 7 1/2 hours of training over 4 successive days.
