OSHA 30 Hour EQ+ General Industry Review Course and Competency Exam course description:
The 10 hour EQ+ (Equivalent Plus) course is intended to provide workers with awareness of common job-related safety and health hazards, while the 30 hour EQ+ (Equivalent Plus) course is more appropriate for supervisors or workers with some safety responsibility.
This OSHA 30 Hr EQ+ General Industry Course provides training for workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces in the general industry. This course content exceeds the mandatory and elective topics prescribed by OSHA in the 30 Hour General Industry course, and includes performance evaluations and objective summative testing on each topic. This course is an excellent means to verify your knowledge acquired through the OSHA Authorized courses and can be used to document REQUIRED training under the OSHA Standards.
This course is not the OSHA AUTHORIZED 30 Hour Course. This is a review and competency course designed to meet the training requirements for the applicable OSHA Standards. It is important to note that the OSHA 10 & 30 hour courses are voluntary programs and do not meet the training requirements for any OSHA standards. Although some states, municipalities or others may require outreach training as a condition of employment, it is not an OSHA requirement. None of the courses within the Outreach Training Program is considered a certification. If you are required to take an OSHA Authorized course please reference our live training tab and request a written proposal or go to OSHA’s website for a list of providers in your region.
