The ABCs of Safety Certification

Construction managers are well aware of the necessity for employees to complete OSHA certified 10-hour and 30-hour training courses, both for high-end projects and those less complicated. However, it is worth emphazing the benefits of making sure that workers are qualified with not only the proper training—but also with the necessary completion card. Here we break down the basics and how Diversified Safety Services can help you reach your compliance goals.

The 10-hour course covers the OSHA regulations and standards in 29 cfr 1926. Topics often included are fire protection, personal protective equipment (PPE), scaffolding, electrical safety, and fall protection.

The OSHA certified 30-hour course is an advanced safety training course that gives workers and employees a more in depth look into the hazards and injuries that could be faced at worksites and the prevention methods to be used. The 30-hour course is specifically devised for safety directors, foremen, and field supervisors; a 30-hour program provides complete information on occupational safety and health for workers’ compliance issues. Upon successful completion of the course, participants receive an OSHA 30-hour Construction Outreach DOL course completion card.
