OSHA requires employers to provide training to workers who face hazards on the job. We create training materials, distribute training grants to nonprofit organizations, and provide training through authorized education centers.
Before engaging in any potentially hazardous activities, workers must receive appropriate safety training from their employer, as defined in OSHA standards. Learn more about OSHA’s training resources.
Outreach training courses are basic hazard awareness classes for workers delivered by OSHA-authorized trainers. They are not required by OSHA, but some localities and employers require them.
The agency authorizes OSHA Training Institute Education Centers to deliver occupational safety and health training to the public and private sectors in all industries.
Named after worker safety advocate Susan Harwood, OSHA awards grants on a competitive basis to nonprofit organizations to help them develop and deliver training programs to workers and employers.
