This course is designed for personnel interested in teaching the 10- and 30-hour construction industry safety and health outreach program to their employees and other interested groups. Special emphasis is placed on topics that are required in the 10- and 30-hour programs as well as on topics that are the most hazardous, using OSHA standards as a guide. Course participants are briefed on effective instructional approaches and the effective use of visual aids and handouts. This course allows the student to become a trainer in the Outreach Program, to lead both a 10- and 30-hour construction industry safety and health course, and to issue cards to participants verifying course completion.
