Florida OSHA Safety Training Courses

Florida OSHA Training Requirements

According to Miami-Dade County law, an OSHA 10 hour Construction Course is required for all employees employed on a project of any public or private contract valued in excess of $1,000,000.

Miami-Dade County Required Training - 10hr OSHA Outreach - Construction
Reference: Miami-Dade County's Residents First Training and Employment Program, County Code of Ordinances 2-11.17, and Ordinance 14-26 has established important OSHA safety training requirements for County Construction Contracts.

Under the Miami-Dade Residents First Training and Employment Program, contractors are required to submit a notarized affidavit stating that every employee reported on the payroll has completed OSHA Outreach 10-hour Construction safety training or an OSHA Outreach 30-hour Construction safety training prior to working on the project.

For other jobs in Florida, 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 Florida - 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.

Florida Occupational Health and Safety Program (OHSP)

The Florida Department of Health - Occupational Health and Safety Program (OHSP) gathers data about workers in Florida, analyzes the number of work-related injuries and illnesses, and determines the risk factors associated with these events. This information is then shared with partner agencies and other programs, the general public, employers, and employees in an effort to reduce the occurrence of such events and increase the safety of all workers throughout the state of Florida.

OSHA Labor Data - Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) - State Occupational Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities (IIF) Program - provides annual information on the rate and number of work-related injuries, illnesses, and fatal injuries, and how these statistics vary by incident, industry, geography, occupation, and other characteristics. This data is collected through two BLS programs:
  • SOII - BLS Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses
    The SOII provides estimates for nonfatal cases of work-related injuries and illnesses from 46 States and Territories that are recorded by employers under the Occupational safety and Health Administration's (OSHA's) recordkeeping guidelines.
  • CFOI - BLS Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries
    The CFOI publishes data on fatal cases of work-related injuries for all States, Territories, and New York City.

For more information, check out the BLS State Occupational Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities - Labor Programs and State data.

Florida OSHA Top Fatal and Nonfatal Injuries and Illnesses

According to latest data, the leading cause of workplace fatalities in Florida 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.

The construction and extraction occupations came in a close second in workplace fatalities.

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.
