Outreach Trainer Bulletin

OSHA Training Center at Chabot-Las Positas Community College District




Updated Outreach Trainer Presentations Available


OSHA has created a series of OSHA 10-hour Construction Industry outreach trainer presentations designed to assist trainers in conducting OSHA 10-hour Construction Industry outreach training. Since workers are the target audience, these materials emphasize hazard identification, avoidance and control - not standards. No attempt has been made to treat the ten topics exhaustively.


The materials consist of PowerPoint® presentations, lesson plans and other relevant handouts, formatted as zip files due to size. Visit OSHA's Outreach Trainer Presentations webpage to download the files.


Training presentation topics include:

  • Cranes
  • Excavations
  • Health Hazards in Construction
  • Materials Handling, Storage, Use, and Disposal
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Scaffolds
  • Stairways and Ladders
  • Tools - Hand and Power

Outreach trainers are encouraged to review these materials before giving a training presentation.

Outreach Trainer Card Hierarchy for Classroom Training


The OSHA Card Hierarchy for Classroom Training webpage illustrates the levels of training achievement reflected by the trainer and student cards issued through the OSHA Outreach Training Programs. At the top of the hierarchy are the trainer cards which reflect the highest level of achievement and proficiency.

Trainer card: Signifies authority to teach 10- and 30-hour outreach courses and receive OSHA student completion cards. Individuals become authorized by meeting training and industry safety experience requirements. OSHA specifies mandatory topics along with flexible topic requirements for each industry. Trainer courses are offered by the OSHA Training Institute Education Centers. Trainers must update their training every 4 years.


30-hour card: Students who attend the 30-hour course receive this card. The 30-hour course is intended for supervisors or for workers with some safety responsibility. It provides a greater depth and variety of training on an expanded list of topics associated with workplace hazards than the 10-hour course.


10-hour card: Students who attend the 10-hour course receive this card. The 10-hour course is intended for entry level workers. This course provides information about worker rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint and provides basic awareness training on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of workplace hazards.


Disaster Site Worker card: Students who attend the #7600 Disaster Site Worker Course receive this card. Course #7600 is intended to provide disaster site workers an awareness of the safety and health hazards they may encounter as well as of the importance of respiratory and other personal protective equipment and proper decontamination procedures that may be used to mitigate the hazards.
