10-Hour General Industry Course

Course Highlights

The Engineering Extension Office, College of Engineering, South Dakota State University is pleased to present an OSHA Voluntary Compliance Safety and Health 10-Hour Course for General Industry. This course has been designed to meet the needs of general industry employers needing assistance with their safety and health programs, machine guarding, lockout/tagout, electrical safety, walking and working surfaces, safe work practices when working with chemicals, proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE), and OSHA record keeping.

This course will assist personnel in the identification of hazards and determination of the hazard abatement methods. Personnel will become familiar with control methods, test equipment, and training requirements. The course will help you to understand how these regulations affect you and your workplace.

Many employers have difficulty in performing “HAZARD WALK-THROUGH AUDITS” for identifying potential problems in complying with OSHA regulations and determining the need for written programs or Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). The course is designed to help companies recognize such hazards.
