The Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) Outreach Training Program is a voluntary train-the-trainer training program through which OSHA authorizes trainers to teach construction and general industry occupational safety and health standards and policy. We have promoted workplace safety and health by authorizing trainers since 1971. This course is offered through the UMDNJ - School of Public Health OSHA Atlantic Region II training center.
The Maritime Industry Outreach Training Program began in September 2007.
Maritime industry outreach trainers are authorized to conduct 10- and 30-hour Maritime industry outreach courses and receive OSHA course completion cards to issue to their students. To become an authorized trainer, you must complete Course #5400, OSHA Trainer Course for the Maritime Industry. You must pass a final test to receive your trainer authorization.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
·Instruct Maritime workers in OSHA 10 and 30 hour Maritime Standards hazard identification courses;
·Define Maritime terms found in the OSHA Maritime Standards;
·Identify hazards that occur in the Maritime Industry and determine appropriate standards;
·Locate OSHA Maritime Safety and Health standards, polices and procedures;
·Describe the use of the OSHA Maritime standards and regulations to supplement and on-going safety and health program;
·And, describe how to conduct internal training on the OSHA Maritime regulations.
Trainers will be able to conduct Student Courses. The 10- and 30-hour student courses are numbered and named as follows:
Course #7615, Shipyard Employment, including ship repairing, shipbuilding, shipbreaking
