In New York City, the 30-HR OSHA Training is required for individuals applying as a Site Safety Manager, Site Safety Coordinator, and/or Superintendent based on the applicant’s qualifications. Additionally, this program is increasingly a primary requirement for supervisory staff on many construction contracts throughout NY, NJ, Rhode Island and Connecticut.
This course intended for foreman, field supervisors, project management, and other personnel with safety responsibility affiliated with a construction firm or job site.
This program includes OSHA policies, procedures, and standards, as well as construction safety and health principles. The training will place emphasis on those areas that are most hazardous, using OSHA standards as a guide. This program is more applicable for the construction supervisor, with a more intensified focus on various occupational safety and health standards. Course participants can expect to be able to locate and identify OSHA standards in 29 CFR 1926; identify common causes of accidents and fatalities in hazardous areas of construction; recommend abatement techniques for such hazards; and recognize various construction processes, materials, and equipment.
Students are required to complete 100% of the course and actively participate in all learning activities including hands-on demonstrations and the multiple choice and hands-on final exams.
