Course Overview

Who Should take this course?

AdvanceOnline Solutions

This OSHA 30 Hour Construction Safety Online course provides a variety of training to workers with some safety responsibility, typically foremen or supervisors.

The training provides greater depth on an expanded list of topics associated with workplace hazards for construction safety and health hazards which a worker may encounter at a construction site, as opposed to the 10 Hour OSHA Construction Safety course that is for workers without supervisory responsibility.

The training emphasizes hazard identification, avoidance, control and prevention, not OSHA standards.

Employers who have trained their workers with the OSHA Outreach Program for Construction have seen reductions of up to 66% in lost-time injuries.

Through this training, OSHA helps to ensure that workers are more knowledgeable about workplace hazards and contribute to our nation's productivity.

OSHA-Authorized Online Outreach Training Provider

This training is offered through an affiliation with AdvanceOnline Solutions, Inc., who is an OSHA-Authorized Online Outreach Training Provider for this course.

Because this course is regulated closely by OSHA and offered through this affiliation, there are differences in how it is delivered when compared to most of the other online courses we offer. .

OSHA recommends Outreach Training Program courses as an orientation to occupational safety and health for workers. When required by OSHA standards, workers must receive additional training on the specific hazards of the job.

Updated OSHA Policies

OSHA has issued a new policy that limits all OSHA Outreach Training (classroom and online) to a maximum of 7.5 hours of training per day in all OSHA 30 Hour courses. As a result, all 30 Hour courses must be delivered over a minimum of four days.

OSHA has also issued a new policy of Program Jurisdiction Restrictions. Outreach Training Programs are now limited to OSHA jurisdiction only. Student course completion cards can only be issued to students within U.S. jurisdiction (the 50 States and certain U.S. Territories).

180 Days To Complete

Students have 180 days to complete the training from the time they enroll in the course. When a course EXPIRES, the student will no longer have access to the course and any course progress will be lost. There can be no extensions for the OSHA Outreach titles.

Customer Support

Online Training Systems will provide much of the customer support with regard to access to your account and billing, but course content questions and technical support may be referred to AdvanceOnline Solutions.

Internet Connection Speeds and Data Transfer Rates

For users with dial-up modems (56k or faster), Internet connection speeds are affected by the quality of telephone lines and the variable connection speeds of modems.

Internet traffic and the number of "hops" along the Internet your current session takes to reach the data servers can affect data transfer rates. Traffic can also occur on local networks, at Internet Service Providers, and at websites.

Mobile Version

We're excited to announce that this course is now available in HTML 5, making it more compatible with the browser on your mobile device (e.g., smartphone or tablet).

Many of our existing courses are presented using Adobe Flash Player and require additional software that may not be available on your mobile device. By comparison, this course requires only the most recent version of your mobile device's web browser.

Mobile Pros and Cons

Mobile versions of this sort of training are new, but below are some Pros and Cons that we have noticed during our extensive testing.

Pros

  • No computer needed
  • Tablet mobility
  • Tablet screen graphics

Cons

  • Smartphone screens can be too small to see
  • Mobile browsers react differently than computer browsers
  • Phone calls can interrupt training

During our testing we noticed that tablets work much better than smartphones, simply due to their screen size. The newer the device, the better the result. We are also aware that the course will not work on the first generation iPad, nor older Android Tablets.

Growing Pains

Because this is a Beta version of our course, you may encounter some issues as we work out the kinks.

Your Mobile Browser

While HTML5 makes taking this course on mobile devices possible, not all mobile browsers are optimized for HTML5, meaning you may not have complete functionality. If you have difficulty taking this course using the browser on your mobile device, you may need to use a different browser.

Test the functionality of your browser using HTML5 and compare it to the performance of other browsers. If you find other browsers are more compatible than your own, you may want to make the switch.
