Why Osha Construction Training?

Because we often work on construction sites providing structured cabling solutions and setting up audio/visual systems in new construction, plus schools, businesses, and churches, we understand the importance of creating a safe, injury-free workplace. That’s why we offer OSHA Construction Training programs here in Raleigh.

Not only do you want to ensure you and your team make it home safely after a hard day at work, but the cost associated with workplace injury can bankrupt a business or an independent worker. One of the best ways to ensure you and your team are up to date on the latest recommendations is through the Occupational Safety and Healthy Administration training programs.

What Is OSHA Training in Raleigh?

OSHA Outreach Training is based on OSHA 1926 – a separate set of safety and health regulations for those working in the construction field. Training is available in both basic 10-hour courses (OSHA 10), that is designed for workers, while the more advanced, in-depth course (OSHA 30) is ideal for supervisors and those with safety responsibility. The goal of these programs is to teach attendees about common hazards and safety precautions at job sites in different settings. Upon completion of the course, attendees receive a card from the Department of Labor as proof of training. 

Is OSHA Construction Training Necessary?

OSHA, North Carolina’s Department of Labor, and most General Contractors want to see that you’ve completed an OSHA 10-hour Construction course and that you’ve updated it every three years after the initial class. This ensures you’re up-to-date on the latest laws, policies, and guidelines. Whether you’ve never had OSHA training, or it’s been over three years, we can provide you with the training you need as well as an updated DoL-issued card as proof of completion.
