OSHA OTI COURSES
The OSHA Outreach Training Program provides training for workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces. The program also provides information regarding workers' rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint. This is a voluntary program and does not meet training requirements for any OSHA standards.
These courses are taught in conjunction with the Great Plains OSHA Education Center.
OSHA 2045 - Machine Guarding and Machine Guarding Standards
This course covers the various types of common machinery, machine safe guards, and related OSHA regulations and procedures. Guidance is provided on the hazards associated with various types of machinery and the determination of proper machine safe guards. Course topics include machinery processes, mechanical motions, points of operation, control of hazardous energy sources (lockout/tagout), guarding of portable powered tools, and common OSHA machine guarding violations. Program highlights include the ability to recognize hazards and provide options for control and hazard abatement through machine safeguarding inspection workshops. Upon course completion students will have the ability to describe common machine hazards and sources of energy, identify resources for assisting with machine guarding issues, and determine methods of control and hazard abatement, and selection of appropriate machine safe guards.

OSHA 7005 - Public Warehousing and Storage
This course covers the hazards and injuries likely to occur in public warehousing and storage operations, including encounters with powered industrial trucks, material handling, lifting and ergonomics, hazard communication, walking and working surfaces, and life safety including fire protection and evacuation. This course is intended for warehouse workers, supervisors, and employers responsible for developing safe work practices and procedures in a warehouse setting. Upon course completion students will have the ability to recognize the potential for injuries from forklifts, material handling and lifting, exposure to hazardous substances, slips, trips, and falls and methods to control and abate these hazards.
OSHA 7105 - Evacuation and Emergency Planning
This course covers OSHA requirements for emergency action and fire protection plans. Course topics include purpose and requirements of emergency action and fire prevention plans, elements of emergency evacuation plans, and features of design and maintenance of emergency exit routes. Students will participate in workshops pertaining to the development of emergency action plans.
OSHA 7115 - Lockout/Tagout
This course covers the role and responsibility of the employer to develop and implement an energy control program, or lock-out/tag-out (LOTO) for the protection of workers while performing servicing and maintenance activities on machinery and equipment. Course topics include types of hazardous energy, detecting hazardous conditions, implementing control measure as they relate to the control of hazardous energy, developing and implementing energy control programs including written isolation procedures, training of authorized and affected employees, and periodic inspection of energy control procedures using the OSHA Control of Hazardous Energy Standard. Upon course completion the student will have the ability to explain the importance of energy control programs, procedures, training, audits and methods of controlling hazardous energy.
OSHA 7125 - Introduction to Combustible Dust Hazards
This course covers the hazards posed by combustible dust within general industry. The course topics include recognizing the hazards and risks associated with combustible dust, control of electrical installation hazards, and developing controls and strategies to prevent or mitigate combustible dust fires and explosions
OSHA 7510 - Intro to OSHA for Small Business
This course covers an introduction to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the OSH Act for owners and managers of small businesses. Course topics include an introduction to OSHA, OSHA Standards, the inspection process, implementing a safety and health program, worker training requirements and assistance available to small businesses. Upon course completion students will understand OSHA operations and procedures and how to work with OSHA to prevent or reduce injuries and illnesses in their workplace.
OSHA 7845 - Recordkeeping Rule Seminar
Many employers with more than 10 employees are required to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. Some employers who typically do not have to keep OSHA injury and illness records may have to record injuries or illnesses if OSHA or the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) informs them in writing that they must keep records. This 4-hour course is designed to assist employers in identifying and fulfilling their responsibilities for posting certain records, maintaining records, and reporting certain cases to OSHA. Practical exercises will provide and better understanding of how to complete the OSHA 300 Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, the OSHA 301 Injury and Illness Incident Report, and the OSHA 300A Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses.
