OSHA Policies

Per OSHA Program Requirements, all outreach training is limited to a maximum of 7.5 hours of training per day, whether online or in the classroom. As a result, this course must be delivered over a minimum of two days.

Outreach training programs are also now limited to OSHA jurisdiction. Course completion cards can only be issued to students within the 50 U.S. States and certain United States Territories.

Course Completion

OSHA requires that all participants in this OSHA Outreach online course complete their training within 180 days of commencing the course. Different from most of our training courses, after 180 days this course will expire and the student will no longer be able to access the course and course progress will be lost. We are not able to offer time extensions on OSHA Outreach courses.
