This is a trainer Course in Occupational Safety and Health Standards for the Construction Industry.
OSHA designed this course for individuals who are interested in teaching the 10- and 30-hour construction safety and health Outreach Training Program.
The OSHA 500 uses construction standard as a guide, with special emphasis on topics required in the 10- and 30-hour programs as well as those which are most hazardous.
This course allows the student to become a trainer in the OSHA Outreach Training Program, to conduct both 10- and 30-hour Construction Outreach classes, and to issue cards to participants after verifying course completion.
