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 16 hours.
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:
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is delivering engineering services to customers in more than 130 countries around the world with approximately 37,000 trained Civilians and Soldiers (Source: US Army Corps of Engineers).
The Corp proclaims their mission to be to “deliver vital public and military engineering services; partnering in peace and war to strengthen our nations’ security, energize the economy and reduce risks from disasters.” Most notably, it is responsible for building and maintaining infrastructure and providing military facilities in areas where they are needed.
Various USACE trainings are available for the worksite, depending on your assigned duties. Site Safety Health Officers (SSHO) are required to complete the 40-hour EM 385 training and must use this 8-hour course as a refresher training annually. Managers and supervisors who are responsible for leading teams must complete the 24-hour EM 385 course. Finally, workers and contractors are responsible for completing the 16-hour EM 385 course.
Yes, more extensive training is required when beginning your USACE duties, depending on what they are. This training is intended to only be a refresher training for those who have already completed a longer training.
The 16-hour course fulfills the training requirements for contractors and federal employees working on military projects. It is designed to introduce learners to the safety standards contained in the EM 385-1-1 manual published by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). On the other hand, the 8-hour training is for SSHOs who are trying to obtain their yearly refresher training.
While these trainings are much the same and contain the same principles, EM 385 standards are typically much stricter. For this reason, OSHA courses are not approved for training USACE employees.
