In the Trainer Training program, students will develop skills for effectively training others in their workplace on the best practices in occupational health and safety.
Why become a trainer?
Becoming a trainer allows you to take a hands-on approach to ensure the health and safety of employees in the workplace. A designated trainer is also a great benefit and resource for employers to have on-site or available to employees.
Before becoming a certified OSHA trainer, you must meet a combination of experience and training requirements.
General Industry OSHA Trainer Requirements
- Experience: 5 years of safety experience. 2 years of experience may be substituted with a college degree in occupational safety and health OR a designation as a Certified Safety Professional (CSP) or Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH).
- Training: OSHA course #511, which covers OSHA compliance standards as well as general safety and health principles for industry.
Construction OSHA Trainer Requirements
- Experience: 5 years of construction safety experience. 2 years of experience may be substituted with a college degree in occupational safety and health OR a designation as a CSP (Certified Safety Professional) or CIH (Certified Industrial Hygienist).
- Training: OSHA course #510, which covers OSHA compliance standards specific to the construction industry as well as general safety and health principles for construction professionals.
You must meet the baseline requirements in both of these areas and cannot substitute additional training to make up for lack of experience or vice versa. View additional information on experience requirements and substitution allowances at the OSHA Training Institute Education Center.
