Cal/OSHA Safety Training Courses
In 2009, OSHA and Cal/OSHA jointly developed a program whereby authorized OSHA Outreach Trainers who meet additional requirements (see below) are allowed to provide 10‐hour and 30‐hour Cal/OSHA standards based hazard awareness courses in addition to the Federal versions of these courses. The Cal/OSHA Partnership authorized Outreach Trainers will have their Federal Outreach Trainer cards affixed with a “Cal/OSHA Partnership Trainer sticker”. These stickers expire on the same date as the Outreach Trainer card to which they are affixed. Students who participate in the Cal/OSHA Partnership versions of the 10‐hour and 30‐hour Outreach courses will also have their student outreach cards affixed with a Cal/OSHA partnership sticker. These stickers indicate that the 10‐hour and 30‐ hour card expires five years from the date of the class. Students will need to take another Cal/OSHA Partnership 10‐hour or 30‐hour Outreach course in order to update their training status with another card and Cal/OSHA sticker.
OSHA Outreach Trainer requirements to teach Cal/OSHA Partnership 10-Hour and 30-Hour Courses:
Individuals who wish to be authorized by OSHA to teach the Cal/OSHA Partnership versions of the 10‐ and 30‐hour outreach courses must fulfill the following requirements:
- Be a current authorized OSHA Construction or General Industry Outreach Trainer OR become an authorized OSHA Outreach Trainer within six months after completing the Cal/OSHA Partnership class. Trainers should note that the Cal/OSHA Partnership sticker expires on the same date as their Outreach Trainer card.
- Have at least one year of verifiable safety and health experience with an organization governed by Cal/OSHA standards. Outreach Trainers will be required to sign an affidavit of eligibility in their Cal/OSHA Partnership authorization course.
- Complete OSHA #5109 “Cal/OSHA Standards for the Construction Industry or OSHA #5119 “Cal/OSHA Standards for General Industry” or the Update course (OSHA #5029 for Construction or OSHA #5039 for General Industry) prior to the time that their OSHA Outreach Trainer card, and their Cal/OSHA Partnership sticker expires. Cal/OSHA Partnership courses are only available from participating OSHA Training Institute Education Centers. Outreach Trainers are not required to take the Cal/OSHA Partnership Trainer course from the same OTIEC from which they took their Federal Outreach Trainer course. Course participants must bring their Outreach Trainer card to the OSHA #5109, #5119, #5029, or #5039 course to receive their Cal/OSHA sticker.
- Trainers who receive their OSHA Outreach Trainer designation after completing the Cal/OSHA Partnership class should contact the OTIEC which sponsored the Cal/OSHA Partnership class they participated in to sign the Eligibility form and receive their Cal/OSHA Partnership designation sticker. Cal/OSHA stickers will not be mailed separately but must be affixed by the appropriate OTIEC.
Cal/OSHA 10‐ and 30‐hour outreach courses must be taught using only the OSHA authorized Cal/OSHA Partnership course outlines for students to receive 10 and 30 hour cards affixed with a Cal/OSHA Partnership sticker.
