The online OSHA 10-hour Construction Safety course is part of OSHA's successful Outreach
Program for Construction, and is currently the only
OSHA-approved online version. It is intended to provide
instruction on a variety of general construction safety
and health standards. Students who successfully complete
this online course are provided a course completion
certificate and a wallet-sized DOL-OSHA completion
course is designed for construction workers, foremen,
job supervisors, and anyone involved in the construction
industry. Course topics include: Introduction to OSHA,
Electrical Safety, Fall Protection, Ladder Safety,
Excavation Safety, Scaffold Safety, Materials Handling,
Forklift Safety, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE),
and Permit-Required Confined Space Entry.
1. Is this the OSHA Outreach Course that gives me
my wallet-sized card from OSHA?
Yes. This course is the same as the classroom version.
Using internet technology, students can now take the
course 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
How can you offer the course so inexpensively?
The course was developed over a nine-month time frame,
which was expensive to develop. By spreading the cost
among the thousands of students who will use it, we
have been able to "share expenses" with
a greater number of people while retaining the same
high quality that OSHA demands.
Is the quality the same? Who checked the course?
The content of the course is the same that is received
in a classroom. Course content has been verified by
the UW-OTI Advisory Committee, as well as the OSHA
Training Institute in Des Plaines, Illinois. This
course is authorized by OSHA.
Do I have to be a computer genius to use this course?
No, all online classes are designed to be easy to
use, stimulating, fun, and provide a rewarding experience
for the student.
How long will it take to finish the course?
The OSHA 10-hour course is designed to take ten hours
to complete. Some advanced students may finish the
course in less than ten hours and still receive their
cards. The majority of students will finish the course
in about 11 or 12 hours.
The 10 hours it takes to complete does NOT have to
be done all at once, either. Once you have registered
for the course, you have 90 days to complete it. You
can do as many modules at a time as you want, then
stop and come back to the course when it is convenient
