Before participating in the OSHA 500 training course online, applicants need to provide proof of safety experience through work experience or a college degree in occupational safety and a certification of completion of the OSHA 510 course.
OSHA 500 courses provide an overview of the most hazardous and referenced OSHA standards and details on how the provisions should be implemented on the construction site. Course participants also learn effective training techniques and rights and responsibilities.
The week-long courses are conducted by OSHA Training Institute Education Centers across the country and on the Internet. Successful participants are authorized to provide training for OSHA 10- and 30-hour construction courses for four years.
