The OSHA 10 Hour Construction Course is a component of OSHA’s Outreach Training Program.  OSHA’s Outreach Training Program is a voluntary program focused on promoting workplace safety and health, making workers more knowledgeable about workplace hazards and their rights.

The OSHA 10-hour training program takes place over 1 ½  days.  It includes a combination of topics that are mandatory, elective and optional.  It is primarily intended for entry level workers. It is intended to provide workers with an increased awareness about safety.  OSHA 10 Construction covers an overview of the hazards a worker may encounter on a construction site. Training emphasizes hazard identification, avoidance, control and prevention, not OSHA standards.

OSHA-10 is one in a series of courses in core and specialized safety issues. When all requirements are met, participants will be awarded a Road Safety Champion Program Certificate. (Note: the certificate is not a degree or professional certification).

The Road Safety Champion Program (RSCP) is a certificate program designed to improve the safety training of those responsible for operating, maintaining, designing, and enforcing local roads. The long-term goal is to build a knowledgeable workforce that is motivated to implement safety improvements that reduce injuries and fatalities on rural and local roadways.
