The 10-hour OSHA Outreach Training Program for General Industry is intended to provide workers with awareness of common job-related safety and health hazards. The training helps to ensure that workers are more knowledgeable about workplace hazards and their rights, and contribute to a safe and responsible work environment. Course participants will undergo training on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces in general industry. The program also provides information regarding workers' rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint. Some states, municipalities or others may require outreach training as a condition of employment, although it is not an OSHA requirement. The course is intended for workers and supervisors, and anyone involved in plants, manufacturing and health-care industries.

The Outreach Training Program provides basic safety and health information and education - it does not fulfill an employer's requirement to provide training under specific OSHA standards. Employers are responsible for providing additional training for their workers on specific hazards of their job as noted in many OSHA standards. A list of standards requiring training may be found in OSHA Publication 2254, Training Requirements in OSHA Standards and Training Guidelines.
