OSHA Encourages Outreach Trainers to make
10-hour and 30-hour Classes More Interactive
As part of the revised Outreach Training Program Requirements, effective as of April 1, 2019, the OSHA Directorate of Training and Education is now strongly encouraging outreach trainers to include more interactive training techniques in their 10-hour and 30-hour classes. In order to meet adult learning needs, OSHA says the “training must include workshops, case studies, exercises and demonstrations that involve student participation and interaction,” and is recommending that at least 2/3 of each class be interactive.

There are a variety of OSHA resources available to add to your classes to make them more interactive:
Fatal Facts describe cases that are representative of employers who failed to identify and correct hazardous working conditions leading to fatalities at their worksites. The documents offer ideas on how to correct these hazards, and can be used to facilitate interactive discussions on safe work practices. Fatal Facts cover a range of topics, including Agriculture, Asphyxiation, Confined Spaces, Construction, Logging, Oil and Gas and Warehouse.

One example of OSHA Fatal Facts is Warehouse Fall from Pallet Elevated by Forklift .

Interactive Training Techniques

The Interactive Training Techniques are organized into Construction and General Industry folders.

In the Construction folder you will find a wide variety of interactive games and exercises, including Jeopardy and Trenching Crossword .

The General Industry folder is organized into several subsections, including PPE , Assorted Games , Ice Breakers , Bloodborne Pathogens and Trench Excavation .

The Assorted Games folder offers fun interactive games, such as Quiz Show Fall Protection and Twenty Questions .
Lockout/Tagout Case Studies

Each of the Lockout/Tagout Case Studies is based on descriptions of Lockout/Tagout inspections derived from compliance interpretations, court decisions, Review Commission decisions and inspection files. Following each case study scenario, you can walk your students through a series of questions concerning the proper application of the Lockout/Tagout standard. After students provide their answers, you can show them an explanation that identifies and discusses the correct responses.

Additional Outreach Trainer Resources
The OSHA Training Institute Education Center Outreach Training Program Resources webpage features links to OSHA 10-Hour Construction Industry and 10-Hour General Industry Outreach Training presentations. These PowerPoint presentations are designed to help trainers incorporate more interactive training techniques into their training programs.

Our resources webpage also provides direct links to OSHA’s updated Outreach Trainer procedures manuals, helpful “cheat sheets” on recordkeeping requirements and minimum topic length requirements, a sample daily roster and two examples of acceptable topic agendas
