OSHA Construction Safety Training Courses

OSHA Construction 10-Hour Training Course

This course is recommended to all entry level construction workers by OSHA and managed through the OSHA Outreach Training Program. Upon course completion, the attendee will receive a course completion card from the OSHA Outreach Training Program. This card does not have an expiration date.

OSHA Construction 30-Hour Training Course

Confined Space Entry Training Course

  • This 2- to 4-hour course is intended for participants who are involved in Confined Space Entry Operations as either a Competent Person, Supervisor, Attendant, or Entrant. Course times can vary depending upon your company’s Confined Space Entry Program and Equipment (i.e., gas monitors, rescue tripods, etc.). Confined Spaces are areas at a workplace that are large enough to bodily enter with restricted means of egress and not designed for an individual to occupy. When a Confined Space is hazardous to enter, it becomes a Permit-Required Confined Space. This course is designed to train attendees on how to identify Confined Spaces and address their applicable hazards while performing their assigned duties as either a Competent Person, Supervisor, Attendant, or Entrant. Furthermore, this course was developed to meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements established under the Construction Standard’s Subpart AA. Upon course completion, the attendee will receive a course completion card. The employer will determine when retraining is necessary per OSHA.

Excavation & Trenching Competent Person Level Training Course

  • This 4-hour course is intended for participants who are involved in Excavation and Trenching Operations as a Competent Person. This course reviews the requirements set forth in Subpart P of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Construction Standard. Per OSHA, a Competent Person is one who is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards in the surroundings or working conditions which are unsanitary, hazardous, or dangerous to employees, and who has authorization to take prompt corrective measures to eliminate them. Consequently, Amerisafe cannot deem an individual a Competent Person, but it can provide competency training that the employer can use to determine whether or not they would like to establish this attendee as a Competent Person. Upon course completion, the attendee will receive a course completion card. The employer will determine when retraining is necessary per OSHA.

This course reviews the requirements set forth in Subpart P of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Construction Standard. Upon course completion, the attendee will receive a course completion card. The employer will determine when retraining is necessary per OSHA.

Fall Protection Competent Person Level Training Course

  • This 4-hour course is intended for a Competent Person who determines where, when, and what Fall Protection is required to address existing and predictable fall hazards. This course reviews the hierarchy of fall protection and the requirements set forth in Subpart M of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Construction Standard. Per OSHA, a Competent Person is one who is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards in the surroundings or working conditions which are unsanitary, hazardous, or dangerous to employees, and who has authorization to take prompt corrective measures to eliminate them. Consequently, Amerisafe cannot deem an individual a Competent Person, but it can provide competency training that the employer can use to determine whether or not they would like to establish this attendee as a Competent Person. Amerisafe will request information pertaining to the Fall Protection used by the client prior to the training date in order to customize the hands-on portion of the training as Competent Persons must be knowledgeable in the inspection, use, and storage of their own equipment to ensure the personnel they oversee are able to properly inspect, use, and store their provided equipment. Upon course completion, the attendee will receive a course completion card. The employer will determine when retraining is necessary per OSHA.

Fall Protection User Level Training Course

  • This 2-hour course is intended to provide participants with the ability to recognize the hazards of falling and understand the procedures that must be followed in order to minimize these hazards. This course reviews the hierarchy of fall protection and the requirements set forth in Subpart M of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Construction Standard. Amerisafe will request information pertaining to the Fall Protection used by the client prior to the training date in order to customize the hands-on portion of the training as personnel must be knowledgeable in the inspection, use, and storage of their own equipment.

HAZWOPER 40-Hour Training Course

  • This 40-hour course is designed for site workers and their managers who are performing on-site clean-up operations. In order to validate the 40 hours of course instruction provided by Amerisafe, OSHA requires the employer to also provide an individual a minimum of 3 days actual field experience under the direct supervision of a trained, experienced supervisor. This course is designed to meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements established under the Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Standard (29 CFR 1926.65) when paired with site-specific instruction. Upon course completion, the attendee will receive a course completion card that is valid for 1 year as 8-hour annual refresher training is required.

HAZWOPER 24-Hour Training Course

  • This 24-hour course is designed for occasional site workers who are performing on-site clean-up operations. The primary basis between requiring the 24-hour course versus the 40-hour course at a clean-up operation pertains to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs). Individuals who have short duration tasks at these sites and will not likely be exposed at or above the OSHA PELs are eligible to take the 24-hour course rather than the 40-hour course. In order to validate the 24 hours of course instruction provided by Amerisafe for on-site clean-up operations, the employer must provide an individual a minimum of 1 day actual field experience under the direct supervision of a trained, experienced supervisor. This course is designed to meet OSHA requirements established under the Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Standard (29 CFR 1926.65) when paired with site-specific instruction. Upon course completion, the attendee will receive a course completion card that is valid for 1 year as 8-hour annual refresher training is required.

HAZWOPER 8-Hour Refresher Training Course

  • This 8-hour course is designed for participants who have previously completed a Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) 40-hour or 24-hour course.

Upon course completion, the attendee will receive a course completion card that is valid for 1 year as this 8-hour refresher training must be repeated annually.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Training Course

  • This course is intended to provide participants with an understanding on how to properly inspect, use, and store PPE. Course duration can be 1- to 3-hours depending upon numbers and types of PPE to be discussed. The course also aims to inform participants on when and why PPE is necessary based upon the hierarchy of controls, the importance of proper PPE use, and the limitations of PPE. This course is designed to meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) requirements established under various standards. Amerisafe will request information pertaining to the PPE used by the client prior to the training date in order to customize the hands-on portion of the training as personnel must be knowledgeable in the inspection, use, and storage of their own equipment. Upon course completion, the attendee will receive a course completion card. The employer will determine when retraining is necessary per OSHA.

OSHA Recordkeeping Training Course

  • This 2-hour course is designed to cover the recordkeeping requirements set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) under 29 CFR 1904. This course will provide critical information to human resource (HR) personnel, managers, supervisors, or anyone tasked with maintaining your company’s OSHA Injury & Illness Recordkeeping Forms (OSHA Forms 300, 300A, and 301). These records could be requested by regulatory agencies such as OSHA, your insurance company, and even your customers so having them correct and current is important.
