What Is OSHA Construction Training?

If you work in construction, you need to know how to spot, avoid, and report the safety and health risks you encounter daily. Our OSHA Online Outreach Training for Construction ensures you understand how to navigate common job-site hazards to feel safe at work.

Are you working in New York City? Local Law 196 of 2017, the New York City Department of Buildings (NYC DOB) has specific regulations regarding safety on the job site for people working in New York City. Click here to register for courses to complete your NYC SST certification.

Additionally, the course will help you increase your knowledge about construction-specific safety measures under OSHA 29 CFR 1926.

For instance, our OSHA 10-Hour Training Course will teach you the best practices for safeguarding against the top causes of fatalities and accidents in construction. This online course covers how to prevent slipping, tripping, getting struck by an object, electrocution, and getting caught between objects or machinery.

You should also have an understanding of your employer’s responsibility for workplace safety, as well as the rights OSHA gives you as a worker. That’s why you’ll learn how to file a complaint if your workplace doesn’t meet its safety obligations.

What Is the OSHA 10 Certification?

You may be surprised to hear that OSHA does not certify workers, meaning there’s actually no such thing as an OSHA certification. Instead, OSHA requires employers to train their employees in their jobs’ specific safety and health aspects.

That being said, the closest thing to OSHA certification is OSHA Outreach training, as passing their exam results in an official Department of Labor OSHA card.

Who Should Take OSHA-10 Construction Online Industry Training?

This course is for entry-level employees doing construction work. Examples of construction jobs include carpenters, electricians, laborers, masons, plumbers, sheet metal workers, tile workers, and welders.

If you don’t work in construction but still need 10-Hour OSHA online training, we have a separate general industry course.

What is Fall Protection Training?

This course covers fall prevention measures required in the construction industry.

We’ll discuss the areas of a job site that require fall protection and the types of protection that might be used, including guardrails, safety net systems, and personal fall arrest systems.  We’ll also discuss how to inspect fall protection equipment.

You’ll learn about your employer’s responsibilities for fall protection, such as identifying and evaluating fall hazards, creating fall protection plans, providing training, and selecting fall protection measures compatible with the type of work being performed.

Who Should Take Fall Protection Training?

All construction personnel covered by OSHA’s fall protection standards must take fall protection training.

That includes workers, supervisors, and managers that work near or supervise any area that requires fall protection: leading-edge work, hoist areas, formwork, rebar, walkways, excavations, roofing activities, and wall openings.

Workers who inspect, investigate or assess job sites prior to the actual start of work are exempt from OSHA fall protection standards.

Note: OSHA has a separate set of standards for General Industry (non-construction workplaces). This course does NOT satisfy training requirements for non-construction workplaces.
