What Is International OSHA Training?
The International OSHA training program is designed to provide industry-specific workplace safety training to every worker — including those located outside of OSHA's jurisdiction.
Locations under OSHA's jurisdiction include:
- The United States
- District of Columbia
- Commonwealth of Puerto Rico
- The U.S. Virgin Islands
- American Samoa
- Wake Island
- Johnston Island
- The Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands
- Outer Continental Shelf Lands as defined in the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act
While workers located outside of OSHA's jurisdiction are not currently eligible to participate in the OSHA Outreach Training Program, they can still access high-quality training on OSHA safety and health standards from anywhere in the world.
OSHA Education Center's online International OSHA courses provide equivalent training to OSHA Outreach training. Following course completion, you can instantly download your Certificate of Completion.
Who Needs 10-Hour International OSHA Training?
OSHA 10-Hour General Industry Training is designed for entry-level employees located in countries outside of OSHA's jurisdiction. The course is ideal for workers in most industries not classified as construction, including manufacturing, health care, factory operations, warehousing and storage, and more.
Construction workers can complete the 10-hour International OSHA construction course to learn about specific hazards in the construction industry.
If you are a supervisor or work in a role with safety responsibilities, 30-hour general industry training is recommended. The 30-hour course provides training on a wider range of workplace safety and health topics than the 10-hour program for entry-level workers.
