CP07- OSHA General Construction Safety & Health Standards -Certified Program  30 – Hours

Introduction:

Most of the OSHA standards require the Employer to train their Employees in the Safety and Health aspects of their jobs.

These requirements reflect OSHA's belief that training is an essential part of every employer's Safety and Health program for protecting workers from injuries and illnesses.Training in the proper performance of a job is time and money well spent, and the employer might regard it as an investment rather than expense. An effective program of Safety and Health training for workers can result in fewer injuries and illnesses and better morale.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) outreach training program is a voluntary training program through which OSHA authorizes trainers to teach Construction and General Industry Occupational Safety and Health Standards.

issued. In 2009 more than 576,000 student cards were issued by OSHA and distributed.
