New OSHA Walkthrough Training Programs Available

The National Safety Council (NSC) is introducing two new versions of the OSHA Walkthrough for Industry training program. Like the original program, these versions set out to educate new employees or refresh the expertise of seasoned staff.

The NSC’s original OSHA Walkthrough for Industry covers 22 regulatory topics using content from the U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration’s 10-hour training program. The NSC program features an animated character to present lessons and quizzes in an interactive, entertaining manner that enhances retention. New versions include:

  • An intranet program with all the original content, designed for use on a company’s internal Web site. Companies can make training available round the clock to anyone with access to the site. This version is ideal for minimizing costs and avoiding scheduling difficulties.
  • A CD series that devotes one CD each to the top seven topics in demand from the original OSHA Walkthrough for Industry. This version is ideal for companies or departments needing safety training on specific subjects. Topics include Hazard Communication, Preparing for OSHA Inspection, Lockout/Tagout, Recordkeeping, Electrical, Means of Egress, and Walking/Working Surfaces.

All of the OSHA Walkthrough versions complement NSC’s 15 OSHA Compliance courses and can enhance self-study or classroom training.
