OSHA 30-Hour Construction Safety
The LEAD program offers OSHA-authorized instructors to conduct a hands-on Hazard Recognition course. The training classes are held at our on-site state-of-the-art training facility and safety laboratory and are designed to encourage the participation of a tripartite group of contractors, building trade crafts and owner representatives, placing them into a classroom as safety students and not adversaries.

The Hazard Recognition course is strictly voluntary and is held over four days (usually on two consecutive Saturday/Sunday weekend sessions).

The course content is based on the 30-hour Occupations Safety and Health (OSHA) Outreach Program. Topics taught include OSHA Standards that directly or closely relate to the audience in attendance.
