Free Online OSHA Training

I've mentioned OSHAcademy in a previous post a long time ago. But this online safety training is so good I thought I should mention i t again... and besides it's free!

OSHAcademy online courses are developed by Steven Geigle. I took many of his online safety courses when he was with the OR-OSHA, and they were excellent. He has brought those same courses to OSHAcademy, plus added many new ones.

All of OSHAcademy safety courses are free. There is a small fee if you wish to get a certificate to verify course completion. You may study online or print each module, study the material off-line, and then return to submit module quiz. The simple format, ability to study anytime and anywhere, online or off-line, with opportunity to communicate with a real instructor gives you complete control of the study process.

The following are some of the courses that are offered:

Course 700: Introduction to Safety Management Eight modules.

Course 701: Effective Safety Committees Eight modules.

Course 702: Effective Accident Investigation Eight Modules.

Course 703: Train the Safety Trainer Eleven modules.

Course 704: Hazard Analysis and Control Seven modules.

Course 705: Hazard Communication Program Six modules.

Course 706: Conducting a Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Six modules.

Course 707: Effective Safety Committee Meetings Seven modules.

Course 708: OSHA 300 Recordkeeping Seven modules.

Course 709: Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Seven modules.

Course 711: Introduction to Ergonomics Five modules.

Course 712: Safety Supervision and Leadership Eight modules.

Course 716: Safety Management System Evaluation Twelve Modules

Course 720: Preventing Workplace Violence Eight modules.

Course 722: Ergonomics Program Management Eight modules.

The biggest advatage of OSHA Course is that it covers pre-dominant activity by providing module on "Hazzard".But it seems that the course has been made very lengthy while Australian Institutions,naming the course as Workplace Health & safety, teaches it very simply:One core module for 4 days and one elective module out of the alternative varies in 2,3 days.So simple.

great! thanks for the update. I would love to see more updates from your blog because I learn a lot. In fact, there were topics that are part of our discussions back in the office and were pulled out from topics online. Nice one!

Free training! That is quite the offering. I'll definitely be checking it out and possibly encouraging some of our clients to do the same.
