OSHA 30 hour training in construction helps foremen, supervisors, superintendents, safety committee members, safety staff, and others with responsibility for workplace safety get up to speed on basic health and safety regulations affecting their workplace. The OSHA 30 hour construction training course also provides trainees with an overview of how the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) functions.
The OSHA 30 hour training course for construction is based on the OSHA 1926 construction standards, and each student will receive their own copy of these regulations as part of their course materials. This OSHA 30 training construction course focuses on hazards at new construction projects, demolition jobs, and major renovation projects.

The OSHA 30 training courses are presented in a classroom setting (usually spread over four consecutive days), or individual trainees can take an online OSHA 30 hour construction training course.
