Become an OSHA-authorized Outreach Trainer

The OSHA Outreach Training Program teaches workers about their rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint as well as how to recognize, abate and prevent job-related hazards. OSHA authorizes safety and health professionals who complete an Outreach Training Program trainer course to conduct occupational safety and health classes for workers. After training is completed, trainers document the training to their Authorizing Training Organization (ATO) (see Section IV.A.), and receive student course completion cards to distribute to the workers they have trained.
