A History of Safety | Hard Hat Training
For nearly two decades, Hard Hat Training has been offering safety training services. Our first safety training courses began mostly with heavy equipment operator training but have since expanded into a diverse catalog of many unique courses and certifications.
Hard Hat Training began over 15 years ago in Seattle, Washington, where we specialized in the inspection, testing, and certification of cranes. From then until now, our inspectors continue to travel inside and outside the country inspecting cranes and training heavy equipment operators.
Now, our Hard Hat Training series has become commonplace around the globe. We continue our effort to promote OSHA Aligned safety training at affordable prices.

Our main goal is not only to make safety training affordable but to also make it reliable. Our course material is comprehensive and easy to navigate. We do all the research needed to make the training as simple and easy to understand as possible. Our employees are learners and teachers and learners evermore.

What is Safety Training?
Safety training is exactly what it sounds like, it is training that teaches you safety information and practices. Safety training has been a priority ever since the establishment of OSHA in 1970. Before OSHA was established, worker deaths averaged around 38 a day. Since then, there are only approximately 15 worker deaths a day. Many of these deaths occur because of a lack of training.
OSHA does not require safety training. However, the General Duty Clause established by OSHA requires employers to provide their employees with a safe work environment. The best way for employers to do this is by providing quality safety training for their employees. Safety training takes many forms and contains many different methods of training.
Our Safety Training Programs
The safety training programs we offer involve formats that suit the different needs of individuals, employers, and companies. They include:
- Online: Online training programs are great options for individuals especially because they are self-paced and cost-effective. The safety training course is taken on a computer and for this reason, is individual. This makes it not ideal for training large groups of people or for time constrained training.
- Onsite: Onsite training takes the form of a classroom setting where an instructor or trainer is responsible for teaching a group of employees. It is a great option for safety training that needs hand-on instruction and practical evaluation.
- Training Kits: If you are an employer who is already trained for the safety training you want to give your employees, then training kits are a great option for you. Training kits give you the course and additional materials for training your employees yourself.
- Train-the-trainer: If you are an employer, this is a module you can get with training kits that teaches you the course material and how to teach it to your employees.
Where is Onsite Training Done?
Our onsite training option is very useful because it is done at your workplace with your equipment. We provide a trainer from our headquarters in Rexburg, Idaho, who will travel to your location with a training kit to provide training for your employees.
Although we have held training at our headquarters before, we prefer to come to you so that your employees can receive hands-on instruction with the equipment they are training to use.
