Training Program: OSHA 10 Hour Class for Construction

The OSHA Outreach Training Program provides training for workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in the workplace. The program also provides information regarding workers' rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint. This is a voluntary training program that OSHA has created to make workers aware of safety hazards.

How long are the OSHA Outreach classes?

Rent-A-Crane, Inc. is now offering OSHA Outreach training classes to teach your employees about OSHA, as well as hazard recognition and prevention.
