Osha 10 and 30 Classes.
“OSHA allows outreach trainers to design the 10 and 30 level courses around the needs of their clients. Once a class begins, there is a six month window to complete the training, which allows for greater flexibility when working with production oriented facilities.”
“Under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a) (1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) of 1970:
(a) Each employer --
(1) shall furnish to each of his employees, employment and a place of employment, which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees;
(2) shall comply with occupational safety and health standards promulgated under this Act.
(b) Each employee shall comply with occupational safety and health standards and all rules, regulations, and orders issued pursuant to this Act which are applicable to his own actions and conduct.
“The General Duty Clause has in effect, become a “catch-all” rule for situations where no clear regulation exist. One of the goals of FSI’s safety training program is to encourage workers to “think outside the box”. In order to recognize areas that may not have a specific rule or regulation, workers sometimes have to determine the safest methods to complete their work in ways that prevent injuries or cause catastrophic events. ”
Aside from the General Duty Clause situations, the OSHA Outreach Training Program teaches workers about their rights, their employer’s responsibilities, and how to recognize, abate, and prevent job-related hazards.
After training is completed, trainers document the training to their Authorizing Training Organization (the ATO for FSI is the University of Alabama) and receive student course completion cards to distribute to the newly trained workers.
Some states and local jurisdictions have enacted laws mandating Outreach Training Program participation, and some employers and unions require workers to have this training to work on their job sites or 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 (www.osha.gov/Publications/osha2254.pdf).
