Colorado OSHA Safety Training Courses
Colorado OSHA Training Requirements
In Colorado, some companies require their employees to take OSHA training in order to be qualified to perform certain duties. However, whatever industry you work for in Colorado - taking an OSHA Training Course is a low cost investment that rewards you with essential job safety practices that could one day possibly save your life. Most workplace accidents and injuries are preventable, so that's why more workers are taking a proactive step towards occupational safety training. (Choose course in right column.)
HAZWOPER Training Required
The Federal OSHA HAZWOPER Standard (29 CFR Part 1910.120) - requires that all employees that are exposed to or handle hazardous materials must take a 24hr or 40hr HAZWOPER Training Course and an 8hr Annual Refresher, at a level required by their job function and responsibility, before they are permitted to engage in hazardous waste operations that could expose them to hazardous substances.
Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment
The Colorado Department of Labor & Employment assists workers who have been injured on the job, ensures fair labor practices, and protects the workplace - and Colorado communities - with a variety of consumer protection and safety programs.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment - Health Statistics and Evaluation Branch uses the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries provides detailed information on all fatal workplace injuries, including: self-employed workers, agricultural workers, and government employees.
Colorado State University runs an independent OSHA free consultation service where employers can find out about potential hazards at their worksites, improve their occupational safety and health management systems, and even qualify for a one-year exemption from OSHA inspections. They also help small business owners cut medical expenses, reduce injury rates, and lower workers compensation costs.

Colorado OSHA Top Fatal and Nonfatal Injuries and Illnesses
According to latest data, the leading cause of workplace fatalities in Colorado was in the transportation and material moving occupations (Source). The main type of these fatalities is the vehicle backover (i.e., when a vehicle backs up and strikes a worker behind the vehicle).
For more information on backovers, OSHA's Preventing Backovers webpage provides information about the hazards of backovers; solutions that can reduce the risk or frequency of these incidents; articles and resources; and references to existing regulations.
As with most states, the leading causes of private sector worker deaths (excluding highway collisions) in the construction industry were falls, followed by electrocution, struck by object, and caught-in/between.
Source: OSHA Common Statistics Summaries
Falls deaths are preventable by a safety training class that covers 29 CFR 1926.500 - Subpart M – Fall Protection and deals with both the human and equipment-related issues in protecting workers from fall hazards.
