TRAINER PREPARATION GUIDANCE
The Introduction to OSHA lesson of the Outreach Training Program includes an instructor guide for the trainer, a slide presentation, and student handouts. This lesson is for General Industry, Construction and/or Maritime Industry training.
Using the Instructor Guide (IG): The IG consists of instructions for trainer preparation, a detailed lesson plan, instructor references for student Handouts #3 and #12a, #12b, and #12c, along with test questions and answers. The IG contains detailed content, activities, references and notes for the trainer. It is not intended to be a script that is read verbatim to the students. Rather, trainers should review the entire guide (including referenced materials and internet links) prior to conducting training, and use it as a resource in their planning and presentation. The instructor presentation and preparation materials not included in this package may be downloaded from the OSHA website at http://www.osha.gov. The OSHA standards may also be purchased from the Government Printing Office (GPO) Bookstore at http://bookstore.gpo.gov.
The learning objectives: The Introduction to OSHA lesson was developed based on the terminal (TO) and enabling objectives (EO) below. These objectives are the expected student outcomes; therefore, the trainer may not vary from these objectives when planning the training session. TO: Given OSHA historical events and current information, the student will be able to explain the importance of OSHA in providing a safe and healthful workplace to workers covered by OSHA. Specifically, the student will be able to:
EO 1: Explain why OSHA is important to workers
EO 2: Explain worker rights under OSHA
EO 3: Discuss employer responsibilities under OSHA
EO 4: Discuss the use of OSHA standards
EO 5: Explain how OSHA inspections are conducted
EO 6: Utilize helpful worker safety and health resources
Using the Slide Presentation: The Microsoft PowerPointTM 2003 file consists of 48 slides, which may be used by the trainer as a visual aid during the session. However, the focus of the training should be on discussion and interaction with the students, not on the PowerPointTM slides. The presentation was developed using Microsoft PowerPointTM 2003; therefore, it is compatible with this and higher versions of the product.
Using the Student Handout Packet: The packet contains 12 numbered handouts representing 16 files in the packet, since there are 3 versions (one for General Industry, one for Construction and one for Maritime) of 2 of the handouts (Handout #8, How to Read the OSHA Standards and Handout #12, Filing an OSHA Complaint). Along with your copy, copies of the Student Handout Packet should be made for each student.
An overview of the handouts and their use are tabled below. Step-by-step instructions are contained in the IG in the Detailed Content and Notes sections of the lesson.
