OSHA 10 and 30 hour Training

VSR offers OSHA-authorized courses that introduce occupational safety and health, and teach employees to recognize, avoid, abate and prevent workplace hazards.  These courses also provide information on workers’ rights, employer responsibilities and how to file a complaint.  The 10-hour course is intended for entry level workers; the 30-hour course is appropriate for workers with more safety responsibility (such as supervisors).  Both emphasize hazard identification, avoidance, control and prevention, and all who successfully complete a course will receive a Department of Labor 10- or 30-hour card.
