We are excited to announce that UL has been chosen by OSHA as an authorized training provider as part of their Outreach Training Program. OSHA has been committed to ensuring that the caliber of their online programs match their dedication to the health and safety of employees and their workplaces.
To this end, last March, they created a national competition to select a small group of providers that were able to demonstrate advanced expertise, technology and controls to deliver their training products appropriately. PureSafety is honored to have been chosen amongst the candidates.
The OSHA courses that PureSafety will continue to provide include:
- Construction 10-Hour
- Construction 10-Hour Spanish
- Construction 30-Hour
- General Industry 10-Hour
- General Industry 30-Hour
From the official announcement from the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Communications:
"We are pleased to announce the selection of these online training providers," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Dr. David Michaels. "These high-quality online courses will allow a greater number of workers to receive valuable interactive training supported by safety professionals -- especially in remote areas with limited access to standard classrooms."
Since OSHA began authorizing training providers to offer Web-based distance learning in 2001, the online Outreach Training Program has grown significantly. More than 135,000 workers were trained online in 2011, a five-fold increase from the number of online students trained in 2007.
