OSHA-Approved 10 & 30 Hour Outreach Training for the Construction Industry


OSHA Approved 10 & 30 Hour Courses

There were over 4,100 Industry worker fatalities in 2013 – on average, 78 a week or over 11 deaths every day (and 16% of these were contractors). In today's competitive business arena, even simple injuries can severely impact your company's profitability. To assist you in creating a safer working environment, Zee Medical Service Company is proudly offering the OSHA-authorized 10 and 30 Hour Outreach Training for General Industry.

The 10-hour course is intended for entry-level general industry workers, while the 30-hour course is intended to provide training to supervisors and workers with responsibilities for safety. Class sizes must be from 3 to 40 students, with a maximum of 7½ contact hours per day (plus breaks). OSHA recommends outreach courses as an orientation to occupational safety and health for workers. However, some states have enacted laws mandating the training and some employers, unions, organizations or other jurisdictions also require this training. Employers are responsible for training their workers on specific hazards of their job, as noted in many OSHA standards.
