OSHA 30-Hour Construction Industry Course
Live Class & On-Site Training

Includes - Free Study Guide

The Valericela "OSHA 30 Hour Construction Industry Training Course" is the premier program available today. Unlike online programs you will find all over the internet, Valericela provides live instructor classes and on-site training classes to our clients. The advantages are many. Simply put, there is no substitute for the value of "Live Class Discussions and Dialogue with our experienced trainers and other attendees.

Face to Face interactions with instructors allow you to get answers to your questions and have discussions on topics to assure you have a solid understanding. The live discussions and sharing of experiences from your instructors and fellow classmates will provide you with insight you simply can not get from those online courses. In addition, our programs allow for flexibility to tailor our classes to the specific needs of our attendees and focus on topics most important to them, not just pre-selected general topics like online courses.

The Valericela "OSHA 30 Hour Construction Industry Training Course" is intended to provide entry level construction workers information about their rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint as well as how to identify, abate, avoid and prevent job related hazards on a construction site. The training covers a variety of construction safety and health hazards which a worker may encounter at a construction site.

Our live class and on-site trainings emphasize hazard identification, avoidance, control, and prevention, not OSHA standards. Instructional time must be a minimum of 30 hours. The minimum topic requirements are as follows:
