Other OSHA standards make it the employer’s responsibility to limit certain job assignments to employees who are “certified,” “competent,” or “qualified” – meaning that they have had special previous training, in or out of the workplace. Also, the term “designated” personnel means selected or assigned by the employer or the employer’s representative as being qualified to perform specific duties.What is an OSHA 10-Hour General Industry Outreach Training Class All About?The OSHA 10-hour General Industry safety course was developed by the United States Department of Labor (DOL) to provide general industry workers, supervisors, and other personnel with an awareness of safety and health concerns in the workplace. All participants who take this course will become familiar with reading and using the OSHA Standards for General Industry 29 CFR 1910. Students will also receive an update and review of standard safety and health principals, and information that will prepare them to recognize and control a variety of hazardous conditions in the workplace. Students who successfully complete this course will receive their DOL10-hour OSHA wallet card. How Do You Know if OSHA’s Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 1910 for General Industry Applies to Your Industry?There are an endless number of industries in which OSHA’s 29CFR1910 general industry regulatory compliance standards apply to….First let’s look at the definition of general industry: OSHA uses the term “general industry” to refer to all industries not included in agriculture, construction or maritime.  This would include industries which provide a full range of medium to heavy industrial uses and activities such as manufacturing, warehousing, industrial processing, resource and energy production and general service and distribution.If you consider your employment to fall into the category of general industry then you are regulated by OSHA’s 29CFR1010 general industry standards, directives, and standard interpretations.The following is a representative list of industries that would be required to comply with the OSHA’s 29CFR1910 general industry regulatory compliance standards:Agriculture, outdoor advertising, aerospace, aircraft, apparel manufacturing, automotive, theater and broadcasting, biotechnology, transportation, cargo handling, chemical, computer, consulting, consumer products, cosmetics, defense, department stores, education, electronics, energy, food beverage and tobacco distributors, grocery, health care, hospitals, dental, manufacturing, motion picture and video, music, newspaper publishers, pharmaceuticals, publishing, real estate, retail and wholesale, warehousing, hospitality and hotel services, security, sporting industry, technology, telecommunications, and utility providers.Safety professionals throughout all of the above listed industries strongly recommend that employers consider training their employees in the fundamental OSHA safety and health requirements applicable to their services, product and manufacturing processes, and/or distribution lines.One very efficient way to conduct baseline regulatory safety and health training is for employers and employees to consider an OSHA 10-hour general industry outreach course that is customized to meet their specific work environment and workplace requirements.What are the Topics Covered in an OSHA General Industry 10-Hour and 30-Hour Outreach Training Course?The OSHA training requirements listed below have been excerpted from 29CFR1910 for General Industry. Some Administrative standards (Parts 1903 and 1904) apply to General Industry as well.  * Note that additional training requirements may appear in certain other consensus standards (ANSI, NFPA, etc.) incorporated by reference in the various parts of the OSHA CFR, and are therefore mandatory.General Industry outreach training topics and regulatory compliance requirements that may be included in the OSHA 10-hour general industry outreach course or within the OSHA 30-hour general industry outreach course are as follows:Administrative Requirements:1903.2             Posting of Notice; Availability of the Act, Regulations and Applicable Standards1904.35           Injury and Illness Recordkeeping Requirements – Employee InvolvementGeneral Industry Standards and Topics:   1910.38           Emergency Action Plans1910.39           Fire Prevention Plans1910.66           Powered Platforms for Building Maintenance1910.95           Occupational Noise Exposure1910.106         Flammable and Combustible Liquids1910.109         Explosive and Blasting Agents1910.110         Storage and Handling of Liquefied Petroleum Gases1910.111         Storage and Handling of Anhydrous Ammonia1910.119         Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals1910.120         Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response1910.124         General Requirements for Dipping and Coating Operations1910.132         Personal Protective Equipment1910.134         Respiratory Protection1910.142         Temporary Labor Camps1910.145         Specifications for Accident Prevention Signs and Tags1910.146         Permit Required Confined Spaces1910.147         The Control of Hazardous Energy (lockout-tagout)1910.151         Medical Services and First-Aid1910.155-165  Fire Protection (includes portable fire extinguishers)1910.177         Servicing of Multi-Piece and Single-Piece Rim Wheels1910.178         Powered Industrial Trucks (forklift operator training)1910.179         Overhead and Gantry Cranes1910.180         Crawler, Locomotives and Truck Cranes1910.181         Derricks (material handling)1910.183         Helicopters (for material handling)1910.184         Slings (material handling)1910.217         Mechanical Power Presses1910.218         Forging Machines1910.252=255 Welding, Cutting and Brazing1910.261         Pulp, Paper, and Paperboard Mills1910.262         Textiles1910.264         Laundry Machinery and Operations1910.265         Sawmills1910.266         Logging Operations1910.268         Telecommunications1910.269         Electric Power Generation, Transmission, and Distribution1910.272         Grain Handling Facilities1910.332-333  Electrical Safety Related Work Practices1910.410-440  Commercial Diving Operations1910.1000       Toxic and Hazardous Substances1910.1001       Asbestos1910.1003       Thirteen Carcinogens1910.1017       Vinyl Chloride1910.1018       Inorganic Arsenic1910.1020       Access to Employee Exposure and Medical Records1910.1025       Lead1910.1026       Chromium (VI)1910.1027       Cadmium1910.1028       Benzene1910.1029       Coke Oven Emissions1910.1030       Bloodborne Pathogens1910.1043       Cotton Dust1910.1044       1,2-Dibromo-3-Chloropropane1910.1045       Acrylonitrile (Vinyl Cyanide)1910.1047       Ethylene Oxide1910.1048       Formaldehyde1910.1051       1,3-Butadiene1910.1052       Methylene Chloride1910.1096       Ionizing Radiation1910.1200       Hazard Communication1910.1450       Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories
