FEBRUARY 2021  – This course provides intensive instruction on the basic skills needed to manage a safety program for your company. Designed for all employees and managers at all levels of your organization, this course is intended as an overview of the hazards a worker may encounter on a job site while emphasizing hazard identification, avoidance, control, and injury and illness prevention.


While you are learning safety management techniques and what is required of an employer to comply with OSHA, this program is designed so that you will also obtain your OSHA GENERAL INDUSTRY 10-HOUR CARD. This is considered added value for some organizations while others require it as a condition of employment.

Participants must attend all sessions and pass a written exam to receive a certificate and an OSHA General Industry 10-Hour card.


Now more than ever employers are requiring employees, managers and supervisors to receive the appropriate training in order to ensure further hazard recognition, compliance and knowledge of all aspects of safety and health that affect their daily work activities. It is typical for many California employers to require employees to obtain an OSHA card as a condition of employment.

This is a LIVE online General Industry OSHA Card course with the opportunity to ask for clarifications and questions, as opposed to a pre-recorded course. This is a General Industry Card Certification that has been approved to be taught online.

It will be mandatory that your front screen on Zoom is turned on during the entire duration to ensure your participation and engagement during the certification training.
