Many classes will be concurrently presented online in live, instructor-led webinar format (this listing) as well as in-person with limited seating availability (view the in-person listing here).
General industry workers and employers attending this 30-hour class will receive training from an OSHA authorized outreach program trainer on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in the workplace. Course participants will be provided with information regarding workers’ rights, employer responsibilities, and filing a complaint.
Each student will receive a course materials download link prior to the webinar and a course completion card following the training. For those who will be pre-paying for the course (by paying through this website or arranging advance payment with the NES registrar) and would like hard copies of course materials mailed to you, please contact us at email@example.com or 800-637-2384.

This course is designed to help prevent occupational incidents by increasing awareness of and familiarity with safety and health hazards encountered in general industry workplaces and to educate workers on their rights as employees.
