What's in the Intro to OSHA Training Course?

Our Introduction to OSHA training course is regulation compliant, and our online version fulfills classroom training requirements. Each class contains sections on OSHA standards, who is covered, inspections, and violations.

During this training, we will be taking a look at the various roles OSHA plays in the workplace. We will begin by learning about the difference between standards and regulations and how they are created. Then we will learn who is covered by OSHA standards. Next, we will look at how and why OSHA inspections take place. Finally, we will talk about what happens when an employer violates OSHA standards, including the citation and penalty process.

This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required by OSHA.

Estimated Training Length: Because everyone learns and progresses at different speeds, the amount of time you spend taking this training will vary. However, the estimated time for this training is one hour.
Intended Audience:

  • Managers
  • Supervisors

Though you will still need to familiarize yourself with all other applicable federal, state, and local standards, this training encompasses the following laws and regulations:

  • Encompasses these U.S. Standards
  • OSHA Act of 1970, General Duty Clause

Intro to OSHA Train the Trainer Certification

The train the trainer option is used to certify a trainer to teach others using the included training kit. It incorporates the online course with an additional train the trainer module, as well as the training kit. This option results in an OSHA compliant lifetime trainer certification from Hard Hat Training. This certification is not company-specific, meaning you can take it with you should you change employers.

Utility Vehicle Competent Person Training

OSHA defines a “competent person” as someone who “is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards in [their] surroundings or working conditions which are unsanitary, hazardous, or dangerous to employees.” A competent person has the authorization to take “prompt corrective measures” to minimize or eliminate hazards. They have enough training and/or experience to be “capable of identifying workplace hazards relating to the specific operation and has the authority to correct them.”

Some standards do have additional, specific requirements that must be met in order for an employee to be considered a competent person. Our Competent Person option fulfills these specific requirements.

Why do I need Utility Vehicle training?

While OSHA doesn’t have specific standards for Introduction to OSHA, under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that "is free from recognizable hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious harm to employees."
This means employers have a legal and ethical obligation to promote a work environment that is free from hazards. Your understanding of how OSHA works and how you are to cooperate with OSHA will help you create a safe workplace for your employees.
