OSHA 10/30-Hour Construction Outreach Course Descriptions:

The OSHA 10/30 Hour construction training course is intended to provide construction workers with a basic knowledge of basic safety and health hazards on construction sites. The OSHA 10/30 hour construction training course also provides students with an overview of how the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) operates.

The OSHA 10/30 hour training course for construction is based on the OSHA 29CFR 1926 standards. This OSHA 10/30 training course is intended for workers in construction-related jobs, like ground-up construction projects, demolition work, and major renovation projects.

The OSHA 10/30 hour training course in construction standards was created by OSHA, who has authorized certain OSHA Outreach trainers to conduct this 10/30-hour training class for a group of workers in a classroom setting (usually spread over two consecutive days), or individual trainees can take an online version of the OSHA 10/30 hour training course.

Here are the mandatory topics taught in the OSHA 10/30 hour construction course. They take approximately seven hours to complete:

  • Introduction to OSHA
  • Focus Four (leading causes of death in construction- Falls, Electrocution, Struck-By (e.g., falling objects, trucks, cranes)
  • Caught-In or Between (e.g., trench hazards, equipment)
  • Personal Protective and Lifesaving Equipment
  • Health Hazards in Construction

To fill out the rest of the classroom OSHA 10/30-hour construction course, you can select from the following optional topics (online version topics are fixed):

  • Excavations
  • Scaffolds
  • Materials Handling
  • Storage, Use and Disposal
  • Cranes
  • Derricks
  • Hoists
  • Elevators
  • Conveyors, Stairways and Ladders
  • Tools – Hand and Power
  • Bloodborne Pathogens
  • Fire Protection and Prevention

When a participant successfully completes an OSHA 10/30 hour construction training course, whether live classroom or online), they will receive the official OSHA 10/30 hour wallet card. The cards are accepted in all 50 states and US territories and are also needed to prove compliance with those states (MO, NV, MA, NH, NY, RI, and CT) that have a mandatory OSHA 10 hour training law for workers on most construction sites.

  6. High Earning Potential – With such a high demand for craft professionals, companies are willing to spend more to get the skills they need. For those in the construction industry, this means they are getting paid higher salaries than ever before.

Record Keeping

Prior to the new law, the public sector was exempt from maintaining an OSHA 300 log. The MA Department of Labor Standards (DLS) now states that you only need to provide your OSHA 300 log when an inspector or the Bureau of Labor Statistics requests to see it.

The best practice is to maintain an OSHA 300 log.

OSHA 300 Log for MA Public Sector

An OSHA 300 log is used by private sector employers with more than 10 employees to maintain a record of injuries and illnesses that took place and are referred to as a “recordable”.

All of the recordables are documented, but each record also needs a form 301 completed, which details the injury/illness.

A recordable includes any work-related illness and/or injury that results in:

• Fatality
• loss of consciousness, missed work, restricted work, transfer to a lower-risk job
• medical treatment beyond first aid
• diagnosis of a work-related cancer, chronic irreversible disease, fractured or cracked bones/teeth, and punctured eardrums
• any drugs being prescribed or taken at prescription strength

Needle-sticks and sharps injuries, medical removal, hearing loss, and tuberculosis have special recording criteria.

Massachusetts DLS affecting private sectors

As stated in the first blog of the series, Governor Baker amended MGL Chapter 149, section 6 1/2 to include reference to OSHA regulations, updating the law written before OSHA’s inception. This regulation now applies to the public sector.

The law has been updated to contain phrases of OSHA compliance since it was written prior to OSHA inception. OSHA will continue to oversee federal and private entities.

The Mass DLS will oversee the Massachusetts Public Sector while following the general duty clause and practices outlined by OSHA. Neither supersede each other.

Private Companies

There will not be much difference in your day-to-day operations if you’re following OSHA regulations. However, if you’re working on a public job-site be prepared for the Massachusetts Department of Labor Standards (DLS) to pay a visit and look for infractions. Normally, the DLS schedules their visits, unless there is an “imminent” hazard. They can issue corrective action plans that are fine-able if not completed within the given time frame for public sector employers. OSHA will still be the governing agency for private sector employers.

Publicly bid construction projects over $10,000 require the employees on site to have completed their OSHA Outreach 10 Hour Construction training.

We Can Help

United Alliance Services can provide the training right on the job-site, in a private classroom, or in our corporate office. Please call 877-399-1698 if you need to conduct this training to be able to bid on a project.

Updated MGL with OSHA compliance

The law has been updated to contain phrases of OSHA compliance since it was written prior to OSHA inception. OSHA will continue to oversee federal and private entities.

The Mass DLS will oversee the Massachusetts Public Sector while following the general duty clause and practices outlined by OSHA. Neither supersede each other.

Mass Department of Labor Standards

DLS administers health and safety inspections of public sector workplaces. The update clarifies the obligations of public sector employers.

Hefty fines are issued if corrective orders for infractions are not addressed within a specific time frame.

All DLS inspections are scheduled except for higher-risk sites labeled as “imminent” inspection sites where active trenches, aerial lifts operations, and roofing are active.

Defining Public Sector

The public sector workplace is anyone overseen by the Commonwealth: courts, municipalities, state agencies, counties, towns, commissions, and educators from public & private schools and colleges.

The requirements are to ensure workers are able to perform jobs safely and in compliance with OSHA regulations.

A checklist has been issued by the commonwealth to provide guidance.

Injury Reporting

If you have a public sector workplace injury that causes a death, amputation, loss of an eye, loss of consciousness, or inpatient hospitalization, call 508-616-0461 within 24 hours to report the injury.

Keep an updated OSHA 300 log.

Call us at 877-399-1698 if you need training on record keeping or check out our public training schedule or online courses.

Be sure to keep an eye on our upcoming blog that dives a bit deeper into injury reporting.
