OSHA Course Targets Leadership in Safety

The Outreach Training Program and the Center for Construction Research and Training from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration have developed a new 30-hour construction training elective course: Foundations for Safety Leadership.

Responding to a training gap identified by contractors, unions and other industry stakeholders, the course is designed to introduce workers, particularly foremen and lead workers, to five critical safety leadership skills needed to improve job site safety climate and safety outcomes.

Through this training, OSHA helps to ensure that workers are more knowledgeable about workplace hazards and their rights, and contribute to our nation’s productivity. Click here for more information.
