OSHA 500
Trainer Course in Occupational Safety & 
Health Standards for Construction Industry


This course is designed for individuals interested in teaching the 10- and 30-hour construction safety and health Outreach Training Program to their employees and other interested groups.  Using OSHA Construction Standards as a guide, special emphasis is placed on those topics required in the 10- and 30-hour programs as well as those which are most hazardous.  Students are briefed on effective instructional approaches and use of visual aids and handouts.  This course allows the student to become a trainer in the OSHA Outreach Training Program, to conduct both 10- and 30-hour Construction Outreach classes, and to issue cards to participants after verifying course completion.  Students who wish to participate as authorized Outreach trainers in the OSHA Outreach Training Program must prepare a presentation on an assigned OSHA Construction Outreach Training Program topic individually or as part of a group and successfully pass a written exam at the end of the course.  


  • Students must successfully complete the OSHA # 510 Occupational Safety and Health Standards for Construction
  • Have five (5) years of construction industry safety and health work experience. Please note that 'working safely' in the industry does not meet the safety experience requirement

A degree is not required, however, if you have a degree in occupational safety and health, a Certified Safety Professional (CSP) or a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) designation, in the applicable training area, may be substituted for two (2) years of work-related experience.

The registration fee for this course includes the various handout material and presentation materials.

All participants in this course will be required to prepare a presentation on an assigned OSHA Construction Outreach topic, pass a performance exam and a knowledge-based exam to successfully complete the course. It is strongly encouraged that participants bring a computer.

NOTE: Authorized OSHA Outreach Training Program trainers are required to attend OSHA #502 Update for Construction Industry Outreach Trainers at least once every four (4) years to maintain their trainer status.
