This course provides participants with an understanding of safety hazards and safety-enhancing workplace practices. It is appropriate for all employees working in a manufacturing setting, and serves as a tool for employers to keep employees healthy and productive by strengthening their company’s safety culture.
The 32-hour training combines materials from the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) that are focused on manufacturing-specific safety issues, with more prescriptive content from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Outreach Training Program. The curriculum explores unsafe conditions, as well as the processes and procedures that rectify them and create a safer work environment. Participants complete MSSC’s online-based safety module and attend a classroom-based OSHA-authorized portion that features lectures, videos, and hands-on group exercises.
Upon successfully passing an MSSC exam and OSHA-authorized classroom activities, participants will receive: a Safety Certificate from MSSC, an OSHA Outreach Training 10-hour course completion certificate, and an OSHA 10-hour General Industry card.
