What's in the Training Course?

Our Walking & Working Surfaces Safety Training course is regulation compliant, and our online version fulfills OSHA’s classroom training requirement. This class contains sections on outdoor and indoor surfaces, prevention, accident profiles, and more.

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.

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

Certification Standards

U.S. Standards

  • OSHA 29 CFR 1910.21 Subpart D – Walking-Working Surfaces
  • Canada Standards

  • CLC 2.14 (1) (2) (3)
  • CLC 3.14 & 3.15
  • British Columbia, OHS 4.39-4.41
  • Saskatchewan, Part IX Section 124,189,195
  • Yukon Part 1.51 (1)(2)(3)
  • 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.

    Why Do I Need Safety Training?

    Regulations make it very clear that any employees working in or around slip, trip, and fall hazards must be trained (no matter how long they’ve been on the job). The standards also state that the employer is responsible for overseeing employee safety training and evaluating the permit space program in order to confirm that the employees have the understanding, knowledge, and skills needed for safe confined space entry operations.

    When it comes to refresher training, the standards in some instances (like forklifts) are very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent to operate the equipment. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all types of equipment. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that prove continued competency.
