Construction Workers and Supervisors

Our OSHA outreach courses cover recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of workplace hazards. They are taught by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) instructors who are authorized to teach and train the workers. Students receive a card acknowledging they have successfully completed the class.

OSHA cards don't expire. However, per New York City Department of Buildings, only cards issued within the past 5 years can work on any site.

The 10 Hour Site Safety Training is now required by NYC Department of Buildings. It is a supplemental course taken after the OSHA 30-hour course.

Construction is a high-risk industry, and the high hazard it poses to workers is often overlooked. Construction workers engage in many activities that may expose them to serious risks. Falling from rooftops, unguarded machinery, or being struck by heavy construction equipment are all possible hazards. Electrocutions, silica dust, and asbestos also pose a safety and health hazard.
