OSHA 10-Hour General Industry

    OSHA 10-Hour General Industry

    As a general industry worker, you must be aware of the latest safety standards set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). You also must find time in your busy schedule to complete your required continuing education units (CEU). Designed to allow you to accomplish both, our OSHA 10-Hour General Industry course is an online OSHA-authorized version of OSHA’s popular Outreach Training Program and covers what you need to know to stay safe on the job.

    Course Objectives

    Throughout this online course, you will receive 10 hours of training that covers relevant job site safety topics, including:

    • Worker rights and employer responsibilities under OSHA
    • Requirements for selecting and wearing personal protective equipment (PPE)
    • How to protect oneself and coworkers from slip, trip, and fall hazards
    • Major material handling hazards
    • Fixed and portable ladders
    • Unguarded and inadequately guarded machinery
    • Flammable and combustible liquids
