Importance of OSHA 10 Hour and 30 Hour Training

Importance of OSHA 10 Hour and 30 Hour Training

By on Aug 16, 2018 in Blog | 0 comments

OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) has been working to reduce workplace injuries and fatalities since the 1970s through training and safety standards. OSHA has a summary of the training requirements, and through the OSHA 10-Hour and 30-Hour Training classes, you or your team members can complete the training.


So, who has to take OSHA Training?
There are two types of OSHA training classes: General Industry and Construction. The General Industry training programs are designed for workers in the manufacturing and service industries. These industries include manufacturing of every kind of product, foundries, metal fab shops, warehouses and healthcare facilities. The Construction training programs are designed for workers on construction and/or demolition sites and activities.


What is the difference between the 10-hour and 30-Hour training?
The 10-hour courses are general courses for all construction and industry workers. This is a great course to send your general employees to. The 30-hour courses are specific to foremen, supervisors, safety committee members, managers, owners, and anyone else responsible for workplace safety. Both the 10-hour and the 30-hour classes include mandatory topics that must be discussed. At Karl Environmental, we also have the ability for you to add on additional topics, which will also increase the length of your class.


Why is it important to send your employees to have OSHA training?
By completing the OSHA training courses, you are ensuring your employees know how to complete their job safely. This will end up reducing the risk of workplace accidents. Also, workplace accidents end up costing an employer more money than they realize. By making it a priority to invest in your employees’ safety and training, you are actually saving yourself money!


Here at Karl Environmental we have several staff members who are trained to teach the OSHA 10-hour and 30-hour training. The training courses can be completed at our location, or if you have a group that you would like to have trained, we also provide on-site training. Take time to learn more about our OSHA training classes and contact us today to register.
